10. Any of the “debris” the fans pelted the track with at the finish of the 2004 Aaron’s 499 in Talladega, which eventually led to green-white-checkered finishes in the Cup Series.

9. One of the many free cartons of Winston cigarettes like I used to bring home from every race.

Now look, the stump that jumped in front of my car does exist. It’s in that case over there, right next to the mystery debris.

8. Pictures of a sold out crowd at Auto Club Speedway in California.

7. An actual piece of “mystery debris.” (Actually, there is that exhibit … the case is just empty!)

6. A tribute to the National Association of Minority Race Fans (NAMRF! Remember them?)

5. Mauricia “Mo” Grant’s officials’ uniform.

4. An official, up-to-date copy of the NASCAR Rule Book. (Copies of which are not available in the gift shop!)

3. The stump that jumped in front of Brian France’s Lexus.

2. A replica of Dale Earnhardt, Jr.’s Cup championship trophy.
