The mustachioed one intimated that there was some concern in his opinion that didn't need to be shared publicly over his interaction with Shannon on Spooner's. Tom was stuck, broken, and trying to winch and mentioned his displeasure with how things went.

As in past years, it pretty much boils down to you are either moving or you're part of the trail. He's probably grumpy about being a traction aiding device.

(me being a dick and purely speculative because like the rest of us, I wasn't there)

It turns out Tom's moustache is actually a bush.

So two dudes getting pissy about trading paint on the track?

Ok, sounds like fun gossip to listen to but isn't anything really important.

You could have some fun with that one. If the ruling comes down that Shannon takes a penalty for that infraction, think about how much fun you could have with that as a strategy.

Get two cars on the same team. First car goes through a tight spot, second car strings a winch line across the trail and tensions it. Now no one can pass without taking a penalty.

Again, not to mention the pure irony given the players involved.

As of now, it's just one dude, the other one is quite pleased with how things went and hasn't said anything that's been reported.

I suspect given his fairly blunt communication style that it won't be long before that changes.

Tom has to know how close the race was and him being stuck, broken, and on the cable pretty much took him off the podium especially give who was in the mix for the top 5 spots at that point in the race.

Did he at least get out and throw a rock like a girl?

Yes, it was pretty reckless imo. Would be pretty lame if he came out and bitched about someone returning the favor.

Since at one point they had Wayes, Shannon, Wayland, Scherer, Miller, Lucas Murphy, Gilstrap, and Blyer all in or very close to Spooners at once? Yeah I'd think so.

Don't get me wrong, I want to see Tom figure out how to not break his car and win.

Not defending anyone but watching the video and putting yourself in Tom's car, there is almost no way he knew the guy was on the cable based on what he could see.

He probably could see the co-driver standing out front there though, seems like at least a horn honk would have been in order.

Pure speculation of course.

It'd be a shame if wayes started to believe his own hype too much.

Another angle from 2014



again, I actually really enjoy watching Tom race and I assume this is just rumors circulating and that no one who matters is getting that wrapped around the axle over this. I want to see the Mustache memes after he wins.

I'm going to have to retract what I said after looking at it again and hearing Tom's comments. When he first made it up, he was far enough beside the other car to see what was going on. Everything after that makes him a dick.

I don't even understand why he went to the right in that video, it appeared that there was plenty of room on the left to go by and he actually wasted time and risked taking himself out by going the way he did.

Sure it was cool looking and put on a show but those don't seem like the kind of decisions that put you in the winners circle.

My favorite part of the race yesterday came from some helo footage. Bit fuzzy on all the details but it showed Tom hauling the mail past a car that thought it was moving out. Then both of them get passed by Healy who just about makes them look like they were out for a Sunday stroll. Healy was just flat out getting some.

If you listen to what he said, he states he built the car for the right side line.

If there was ever a reason to DQ a driver for putting others at risk I'd say that one is at the top.

I saw that footage as well. Very impressive driving and footage.

His "old car" he says he'd never had the new one up it.

Again, its all mental masturbation and hindsight at this point anyhow, so take it for what it is.

I just find some irony in him bitching about a winch line being run over, if that is what happened.

He could have easily taken the left line and not risked a co-driver/winch line/rollover.
