I am the Santa Fe Super Chief parade train. I am fun to see and hear
My sad true story:
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.
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.

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