Every one of us who has done much wheeling has made a bad judgement call on spotting. (mine most recent was last Sunday at the Mounds ) The most important thing is know the people who are helping you and keep a good line of communicaton.

Here's my whoops.
rubber side down my friend

Ya. Dumbest thing ever. I got turtled on a big tire & was getting tugged back. Spotters suggesting turning to the passenger side to let the driver's tire swing around the tire instead of trying to pull both front tires up and over. Jeep started to turn, passenger tire came up on the big tire & the whole rig pivoted on the skid while both drivers tires cleared the big tire without hitting it. End result, sideways pull on mostly level ground and a full 180 roll.
