Blownhemi has posted this gem to YouTube with this note of explanation:
Okay guys, this is a very controversial topic. Here’s the unedited footage of the Steve Nogas incident.
What seems to have happened is that the driver Steve Nogas was told he was disqualified for reason stemming back to his qualifying burnout (disobeying a fire mashal), he forced his car through a group of officials and on to the track, and after the burnout he was escorted from the track and his car towed away.
Could have been handled a little better from both sides, but forcing your way on to the track is definitely the wrong way to go.
I’ve posted this video to provide a little clarity to the incident.
There also appear to be Steve Nogas support groups proliferating.
