Not much of a race story, but it scared the crap out of me! So I'm toolin along at about 6 a.m., headin' downtown, I'm in the right lane, and theres a d-max in front of me in the middle lane. He gooses it a little and pulls out ahead. I get a break in front of me as we cross over a bridge (bridge, early morning freeze, heavy foot...) I hammer it and there goes my a** end, now I'm completely sideways, in three lanes of traffic, on black ice, at about 60 or 70 mph. I was able to recover nicely, every other car on the road stayed the hell away from me, I got to work, threw out my underwear, and scrubbed my seat. Never did see the d-max after that, I may have pushed him off the bridge.

That is a bad feeling being sideways on a three lane highway. Not bad when you want it to happen, but sucks when you going that fast and it happens!

Probably scared the d-max and took it home.
