You are risking your whole car at those lapping days in my opinion.
I drove by that day. Saw the civic being pulled off the track. No tow truck...just an suv pulling it.
Also saw a smashed up VW.
No offense but if you were trying to put pressure on somebody to let you by, YOU should of been pulled off the track.
Next time give him a quick flash of the high beams and if he doesn't let you by, just exit the track and enter behind someone else.
