    Apparently they were on the freeway and saw the rally, jumped in and tagged along for the ride. They seemed pretty excited, guess I would be too. Not sure if I would try following them. With my luck I would have been pulled over. The strange thing is a cop was giving someone a speeding ticket when the cars zoomed by doing 100mph.

    Oh my, one can tell her attitude has changed when one sees driving 100mph as not a big deal.

    Seriously, a trooper RESIGNED over this? I'm thinking he was more than fully vested so it was easier to just quit.

    Oh, and howdy, folks! :)

    Hi there sweety pie! Missed ya!

    I think he resigned before he could be fired. This video proves just how dangerous the situation was. That was just too much traffic for those speeds. I've done some spirited driving but that situation with law enforcement involved was irresponsible to put it mildly. Not the kind of P.R. states are normally looking for.

    Funny how the exotic car drivers were getting upset about these guys joining in on "their" fun.

    That GT and the Maserati sounded bad ass though! Just sayin. :whistle:
