Top 10 Items Confiscated by Border Patrol When NASCAR “Invaded” Mexico

10. A fuel sample from the No. 99 car of David Reutimann… you never know what the MWR team is hiding in there.

9. 50 gallons of “authentic Mexican water” from the Roush Fenway teams, marked “A gift for Hendrick Motorsports’ water cooler.”

8. A case of black-market Juan Pablo Montoya voodoo dolls from the No. 41 hauler.

7. The entire No. 7 GEICO Chevrolet transporter. Apparently, it’s illegal to take reptiles into another country without a lengthy quarantine.

6. Cardboard standup of Scott Wimmer. They questioned it for 20 minutes before realizing it wasn’t Wimmer, since the personalities were strikingly similar.

5. Bobby Hamilton Jr. and Jason Leffler‘s driving suits. Judging by the size of them, Border Patrol was concerned that child labor laws were being broken.

4. Hamilton Jr. Reports of troll sightings in the National Enquirer became the cause of a large misunderstanding.

3. Boris Said… at least, until the confusion about taking exotic nests out of the country was cleared up.

2. Several blue flags from the NASCAR hauler, suspiciously unused.

1. Kevin Harvick. Turns out DeLana meant it when she said no racing when the Cup Series had the weekend off.
