Watch motorcyclist kick moving car, trigger chain-reaction crash

A road-rage confrontation on a freeway north of Los Angeles caused a chain-reaction crash that put an occupant of a third vehicle in the hospital - and it was all triggered when a motorcycle rider kicked the side of a moving car. The crash occurred around 6 a.m. Wednesday in Santa Clarita. A passenger in a trailing car started shooting video when he said a gray sedan cut off the motorcyclist.

The number in question here is 7:16.04, and if you start comparing that with other published lap times from manufacturer's tests, you'll notice that this puts the brash Camaro in fast company. Let's start first with its close family relation, the regular ZL1. "Regular" is a bit of a misnomer, because it packs a supercharged…
