it wasnt me that did it. i was standing near the pits watching the race before mine while my friend(my pitman) was messing with my fuel bottle(venom fuel bottle that doesnt have a screw on cap, its the one that slides in). well the cap was on the spout and he was messing around squeezing it and the top popped of and fuel squirted everywhere, just happened that it was pointing in my direction when it happened

Yea, its not the easy, but once you build the memory for a track it gets a little easier. Sometimes not having any depth perseption can suck.

It can sometimes, its been about 14 years since it happened so im pretty use to it. On some of the tracks I have to learn all over again, but a few times around and i find my lane. Its not as bad as you would think. I just recomend to people, where safty glasses as much as you can.

Before someones asks the question, I lost it fishing. The lure pulled my eye out of my head.

Thanks, I can laugh about it now, when i told my buddy to pull the hook out, he just started to cry. It was rough the first year or two, but you learn to adjust. Its all good now. JUST MAKE SURE YOU WERE YOUR SAFTY GLASSES lol

I haven't gotten any nitro in my eye, but I can tell you it doesn't taste good.

Guess i was pretty lucky with my fishing miss-hap.

I used to work the open party sportfishing boats out of San Diego. Noob guy was overhead casting big jigs where he wasn't supposed to be while i was on the bait tank laying a chum line out. He sunk two out of a treble hook right in the nap of my neck while trying to cast. And it wasn't a barbless kind.

Lets just say the captain was a good medic (and a good shrink to get me calmed down enough not to do something stupid to the guy).

Oh ya....fuel in the eye. I found that cut in the fuel line when priming the engine by blowing down the pressure hose. Ya...it stings good.

I was using a siphon......mouth and fuel line to empty a go kart tank at the end of the day(smart?) and sucked down a couple of gulps of methonal
......It can cause blindness in enough quanities (small amount). Had to drink a charcoal drink and sat back for the fun. You will never be so cleaned out it your life.

i got hosed by fuel one time in my right eye! when i raced sportsman. it was my fault like a dummy i took out my glow plug because my motor had too much feul in the cylinder and wouldnt turn over, anyways i took off th plug and sat it on my box to clear it out, i was in a rush and didnt bother to move my head , instead i looked right into the plug hole and hit it down and a big spray of 30% basicly pressure washed my eye for me! that feels like cold mace!! i still won my main with one eye!
