Crossed up

Crossed up refers to a moment when the driver has the steering wheel and wheels pointing in one direction, and the car is going in the opposite… You will hear the commentators say something like “He was all crossed up there for a moment”. 

So momentarily out of control. Examples include when too much power is applied, the car drifts, and under braking when the wheels lock up.
