I could see Nick doing something like that, but not to edge someone out for a win. Maybe just a tow to keep his spot, lol! Nick is classier than that. He would have slapped the kill switch, flipped the guy off while passing, and pissed in the guys chair in the pits. :lmao

I know some hooligan that races supermoto that did the same thing during a race at Road America. Hit the kill switch and gave the finger while crossing the finish line. I heard he is a real dick in person. LOL

I think he made Barney drop the throttle ......

This was off the comments section:

It is pretty clear most of the posters here don’t race. That wasn’t some one off tug of the arm. It is an old flat track move of which Barnes is all too familiar. He and Tyler have flat track backgrounds so it made it more funny to racers. Barney just didn’t want or expect it there, road racing.
No one got into this kind of uproar when douchey Danny Eslick tried to flip Gabe SantaColoma’s kill switch coming out of T11 at Infineon in 2010 (or was it 2009?)
It was really stupid but Tyler probably just thought it was funny. Poor choice on his part. A bit extreme on AMA’s. As it has been said, they reap the benefits in publicity.
