Ok, I live in a smallish town and there are a bunch of Ricer kids that hang out with us. One of the kids with an H-22 swap into an Accord that I'd smacked down last month wanted to race a VW GLi 1.8T and wanted me to flag. So, we roll out into the counrtyside on this road that we haven't used in a long time with me in the lead. It's very dark and I'm rolling along at 40 on this road with this kid "Snacks" on my tail when we come up on this 15 MPH corner. I just keep it the same and twitch through the corner at 40. This kid, sees me do it and thinks "That looks cool!" and tries it. I look in my mirror in time to see him slide across the road and into the ditch. We all stop and go back to check him out and he gets out of the car (imagine this, 280Lbs, 5'5" tall, black (nothing against blacks) dressed in hip hop stuff talkin' like a rapper) and says "I didn't see the corner cause I was looking for a cigarette". So, here's his car in the ditch with the left rear two feet off the ground. We put my passenger in and pushed him out. Afetr inspecting the car, we go ahead, stage 'em and they run. Snacks gets the win by two cars. Of course, by the time we got back, everybody knew and proceeded to give him shit all night about it. It was cool though, no harm, no foul. He did finally admit to trying to keep up with the Snake in the corner though.
