I am the Santa Fe Super Chief parade train. I am fun to see and hear

Today I was Banned by NASCAR, Banned for life! Free Hit Counter

The charges:
1.) Going too fast around the Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois on Saturday September 19, 2009
2.) Going too high on the race track at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday September 19, 2009
3.) Being too long in length on Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday September 19, 2009.
4.) Carrying passengers on Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday September 19, 2009.

My sad true story:
Friday: I am at Good Guys 2009 Chicagoland Nationals car show. Drag racing tonight. Perfect weather

Saturday at 5PM: We each get to make 3 laps around the beautiful Chicagoland Speedway.  Just don't pass the pace truck.  My engineer got me in "Poll Position" for lineup and asked the official if I should be kept low on the track.  The official said "yes, stay low".  Then two GoodGuys officials boarded and we started moving.  I started behind the red pace trucks.  Most of the cars passed me, but I was happy.

When we got done I dropped off the photographers and went back into lineup for a second round.
That is when NASCAR told Good Guys that I was Banned from NASCAR for life.

Half the Good Guys staff is pitching in my behalf!  Wind Tunnel's Dave Despain says "this is unjust!"

Tomorrow I'll have to go to the famed "red NASCAR trailer" to hear the ruling.  Possibly loose 25 points and be fined.  Other NASCAR Sprint Cup VIPs will be there: Juan Pablo, Dale Jr. and Tony.

(Conversation in the red NASCAR penalty trailer:)
What are you in trouble for Today?
Juan Pablo Montoya: "Running some "bleep" into the wall."
Dale Earnhart, Jr.: "Illegal spoiler."
Tony Stewart: "Passing below the white line, what about you?"
Me: "Blowing my horn."

Banned = Banished, Blackballed, Ostracized, Blacklisted, Deported, Exiled, Expelled

PS: Next year I will be camouflaged as a 1970 Chevelle SS.
