Around The Track Auto Racing

It got crazy! I don’t keep up with Nascar, but for you that like drama it’s there. “Mad” Max Papis got slapped by Mike Skeen’s girlfriend and apparently she dislocated his jaw. Yikes.
Check out what happened after the jump…




Max Papis told that he suffered a dislocated jaw following Sunday’s Camping World Truck Series race in Bowmanville, Ontario, when another driver’s girlfriend slapped him on the left side of the face in a post-race rage.

Papis did not know the name of the female who struck him, but said she was driver Mike Skeen’s girlfriend.

“This crazy lady comes shouting at me, and I had no idea, didn’t even understand her, she just started shouting,” Papis told some four hours after the altercation at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. “And all the sudden, she took a full hand — and she slapped me so hard. I’m not kidding. My jaw got dislocated and my left ear is still ringing, big time.”

Papis did not retaliate.

“What do you do? You don’t hit a lady,” Papis said. “I was in disbelief. Complete disbelief. If she would’ve closed her hand it would have been a bad punch, because she hit me so freaking hard. I went to [Skeen] and said, ‘I guess we know who’s the man in the family here, because the guy didn’t even have the [guts] to talk.’ ”

While battling for second-place in the final corner of the race, Papis said Skeen made an ill-advised aggressive move, which ultimately wrecked both trucks.

The drivers exchanged hand gestures during the cool-down lap. And that was just the beginning.
