The brawl at last week's Grand American Road Racing Series in Mexico City ranks up there as one of the strangest moments ever.

But is it number one?  You decide.

I always thought that the pace lap crash at Indy was the goofiest thing I had ever seen. :roll:

Thanks for the correction, Bryan.

I have to go with the priest.  Not only was it strange, it was very dangerous.  He could have been hit by one of a number of drivers who was traveling at full speed around the Silverstone track.

The same priest, by the way, showed up again at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.  He impeded the progress of an Italian runner who was contending for the gold medal.

What was he thinking? :oops:  :oops:
