Yup. I was at a Beer & Track event this past Wed. night. We watched a bunch of incar cameras from various races (NHIS, Glen, etc...) one of the things that was common in a few of them is the "monkey see, monkey do" error. Guys would follow the car infront of them through a bad line, instead of racing the track, they are just following the guy in front of them.

The guy in this video tries to catch the car infront of him, and possibly pushes beyond the limits of th car, but he definately took the corner too early. Not sure if he lifted or broke or the front wheels ran onto the inside of the corner and upset the car. At that speed it looks like he was close to 10/10ths and a little upset proved costly.
