Driver Gets Blinded By Green Competitor

Aug 17, 2007
Neil was the local drag racing champion. He prided himself on being able to beat anybody on the circuit. He had not lost a race in five years. He was the true star of the track. Anybody who wanted to prove they were the best had to beat him.

He had many fans and a few enemies. Some of his competitors had been suspended from the circuit for trying to use illegal tricks. One such competitor was Ray. He was a fierce competitor who would do anything to win.

He especially wanted to beat Neil. Several drag racing circuits including this one had suspended him. He was the true bad boy of the sport. Mostly of the fans dispised him but he had some loyal fans.

His suspension time was up and he was back to prove he was the best by beating Neil. The circuit manager gave him the briefing and told him there would be no tricks. Ray agreed as he always does.

The managers knew they would have to keep and eye on him. They had considered totally banning him, but the circuit was experiencing hard times. They knew people would come to see the competition between the two.

On the day of the race the stadium was full. Drivers lineup early. They had a chance to face each other before the race. Ray looked at Neil and told him he was going to win. Neil had heard all this before and was use to all the talk.

He knew the only thing that counted was what you did behind the wheel. The drivers entered their cars. They started their engines. The green light went down. They were off. About halfway down the straightaway, something made Neil loose control of his car and he spun.

He eventually regained control of the car. By that time, Ray was long gone. Ray crossed the finish line first. When Neil finally finished, he was furious. He told the mangers that a blinding light had come from Rays car which made him loose control of his car.

The managers knew Ray was capable of such a trick and decided to search his car. They found a green laser under the seat. The green laser is capable of creating a blinding light on a target at a distance. They knew Ray had cheated again.

Neil said you could have killed me. Ray showed no remorse. Instead he got in Neils face and said, well then I could have dated that pretty wife of yours. Then he pushed Neil to the ground. He was about to kick Neil when a bunch of others drivers grabbed him.

Track managers called the police. Ray was arrested and charged with assault. Ray was permanently banned from that circuit. When you are prepared to injure someone over competition its time to stop competing. If your competitors turn violent you may have to defend yourself.

If your competitors are willing to hurt you, they probably want care if you are killed in the process. Be aware of who you are competing against. Always know how far they are willing to go to win. Take defensive measures. Reporting them to the proper authorities prevents foul play and keeps others from getting hurt.
