Not attacking him, but it was an aggressive move. He overtook those cars very quickly. And remember we have a 30 second youtube bit. We don't know how he drove the rest of the race, all we can see is this one little bit. Since he's a normally clean and non-aggressive driver, this REALLY sucks.
I watched again and again to see how it happened, and to me the Maxima was closing the door. Your driver had a second option, jump on the brakes and tuck to the right and cuss. It certainly was cuss-worthy, he was definitely cut off. He chose a different option and it didn't work out. The poor Miata had no where to go. Once the back of the Cavelier was hit, he trajectory changed right into the path of the Miata.
BTW-when Mark rolled the coROLLa, I did not defend him. He screwed up, plain and simple, and he owned it. It ruined our team's weekend and it was his fault and solely his fault. I didn't and don't make excses for him. We move on and learn from it. In this case there is some culpability on the part of the Maxima, but he wasn't the overtaking driver. Again, I hope your driver feels better.
