Mid-Ohio: Lap car crashes 2nd in retaliation; Teammates (Video)

Sean Hingorani vs Dean Thompson at Mid-Ohio in the ARCA Menards Series

On Friday, the ARCA Menards Series unloaded in Lexington, Ohio. Teammates unloaded drama at Mid-Ohio.

Watch the Sean Hingorani vs Dean Thompson video below.

The No. 15 of Sean Hingorani started the race from the pole position. With 8 laps to go, Hingorani was on the bumper of teammate No. 55 Dean Thompson in the battle for the lead.

In turn 12, Hingorani leaned on the bumper of Thompson for the race lead. He worked inside of him but that only put him on the outside for turn 13.

They entered turn 13 side by side, Thompson appeared to purposefully miss the apex. With Hingorani on his outside, Thompson ran him wide and clear into the grass.

No caution was thrown. Hingorani was able to escape the grass.

With 1 lap to go, Thompson was running 2nd. Yet, Hingorani was running slow and waiting for him. Retaliation was on the way…

As 2nd place runner Thompson attempted to pass Hingorani on the outside he was forced wide. Smoke billowed as they banged wheels. 2nd place runner Thompson was shoved off track on the final lap.

Both cars were tapped in the sand. Dean Thompson climbed from his car to speak to Hingorani as he remained in his car.

Dean Thompson comments

After the race, Dean Thompson tweeted, “Matthew 5:44”

With those thin pages, that book is far too large for me personally. Yet, the internet translates that to, “Love your enemies.”

Thompson added, “I also have to thank everyone at Venturini Motorsports for always putting together rocket ships for me ! Additionally I’d like to thank TPG Pipe, Toyota Racing and MCM Transportation. Time to go to work again tmrw with my TRiCON Garage boys!!”

Trevor Bayne commented on the scene

“That’s a frustrating day as a team owner,” former NASCAR Cup Series driver Trevor Bayne stated from the Fox Sports broadcast booth.

“You see both your cars, in the sand trap. One, a potential 2nd place finisher. The conversation now is what needed to happen, out of the race cars.”

“If you’re his spotter or crew chief, you’re saying, ‘Hey! Let’s think about this.’ “

Bayne added, “Now, they load these cars up and all these guys who worked all week to prepare these cars gotta go back and unload these two race cars that are full of sand and torn up a little bit. That’s tough.”
