We saw the title on this YouTube video and thought we’d be watching some lame attempt at doctoring video to make it seem like someone stole a pace car at a NASCAR race and was driving it around the track. We were totally wrong. This is insane. A guy actually steals the pace at at the 1986 NASCAR Winston 500 held at Talladega Super Speedway, and makes laps with it! Apparently he got two laps in before everyone figured out that he wasn’t stopping unless they stopped him.
We wonder where the guy that did this is today. We’d love to talk with him!
