NASCAR driver, Max Papis found himself out of contentions Sunday afternoon when he collided with Mike Skeen's truck on the final lap of the Camping World Truck Series race held in Bowmanville, Ontario. As both racers were battling down the stretch for a second place finish, Papis said Skeen made an ill-advised aggressive move, which ultimately wrecked both trucks. Needless to say both drivers had verbal exchanges with one another that led to one of Skeen's crew members trying to grab him inside his truck. After Papis gave his post-race interview, he was greeted by a woman who wasn't quite a Max Papis fan! Take a look:

Wow! What did the five fingers say to the face? SMACK! Can she get away with that? Here's Papis response to the blow to the face: Papis did not retaliate.
"What do you do? You don't hit a lady," Papis said. "I was in disbelief. Complete disbelief. If she would've closed her hand it would have been a bad punch, because she hit me so freaking hard. I went to [Skeen] and said, 'I guess we know who's the man in the family here, because the guy didn't even have the [guts] to talk.' "

@maxpapis @TheOrangeCone -When a "girl" acts like a man don't that put her on the same ground ? #justasking #jackslap — Michael D. Tolbert (@redbarnfarms) September 2, 2013I would have to agree with that. If woman can give a lick then she should be able to take a lick. The lady that struck Papis in the face is reported to be Mike Skeen's girl friend.
