What’s Happening?

NASCAR fans always love getting random souvenir at races, but these former sheriff’s officers took things a bit too far. According to CWB Chicago, two Sheriff’s officers, Patrick Felker and Paul Gregoire, resigned after getting caught on camera stealing NASCAR banners while on duty.

There was no motive discussed in the article written by CWB Chicago, so NASCAR fans were understandably quite bewildered at this sight. It’s hard to exactly make sense of this, but it’s funny regardless.

The may be the weirdest NASCAR-related activity that has been seen this year. It’s hard to exactly find out what their motivation was for this, unless they were die-hard NASCAR fans who desperately wanted one souvenir from the Chicago Street Race. Maybe they honestly thought it was Cook County property and felt “why not?” – just take it if no one was going to use it.

At the end of the day, if this is the worst thing that happened as a result of the Chicago Street Race weekend, then that’s a good thing. A lot of worse things could have happened as a result of that race, especially with the weather refusing to cooperate until about 5 PM local time on Sunday afternoon. That did not stop NASCAR fans on social media from having fun with this.

In the Stands

Quite precisely RBF48

Dumb is a good way to put it.

I will be watching for these two officer’s names in another town over the course of the next couple of months.

Yes, my head was left scratching too Cautious_Training 486.

That is the question. Why?

That is indeed a very fair point to this very strange situation.

I had the exact same face when I read this story the first time.

Hard to argue with that.

Wow indeed Sunshines88. Who would’ve expected this to be a part of the news cycle this week.

On Your Screen

DannyB has seen fans do something like this before, but not cops.

Again, this may be the strangest thing to happen surrounding a NASCAR race track. These banners tend to be all around towns when race weekend comes around. However, I cannot say I have ever seen them stolen, much less by a cop.
