We asked on Twitter for race fans to send us their most peculiar piece of racing memorabilia. They did not disappoint. Turns out there is some weird stuff out there. Read on.

This is actually fairly common – more than one respondent said that they had taken confetti from Victory Lane. The issue is, like this race fan, you run the risk of it being thrown out. That's because confetti is basically garbage.

What I like here is that this fan took one of the smallest parts of the race car and asked Natalie to sign it, and she did. That takes skill. This is like asking a basketball player to sign a shoelace.

Now we're talking. If those seats could talk ... well, you probably would want your children to leave the room first.

At this point the amount of questions I have could fill an Olympic-size swimming pool and then answers I've received could maybe fill a thimble. Is that Kyle Petty? And why not call it "NASCARbie?" Do I have to do everything around here?

I mean ... I guess that counts as memorabilia.

I would think that if it's signed by more than one driver, it should be worth more than one hot dog. I've never thought of getting coupons signed. Forget hero cards – the next race I'm strolling around the garage with a Sharpie in one hand and a stack of unused Kohl's cash in the other.

This is resourceful and creative. This fan represents the intersection of NASCAR and Pinterest.

It's a cereal box that is acting like a hero card. That's a cool idea. Good, stern picture of Texas Terry there also. In the Intimidating-Cereal-Box-Characters Power Rankings, I'd put him just below Count Chocula, but barely.

See now THIS is clever. I've been saying it for years and it’s been falling on deaf ears but our sport has been severely lacking in decoupage.

I guess this is sort of the NASCAR version of catching a foul ball.

I did not know Dale's visage could be put on a sandwich. They need to do another run of those banana/mayo sandwiches with his face on there. Collector's item.

'Tis admirable you have kept this wad of rubber so long. 2004. Wow. Next year this wad of rubber will be able to drive.

I don't know why it is exactly. Why my emotions have been so stirred. But ... I NEED ONE OF THESE IN MY LIFE.

When you have a bunch of leftover "Magnum P.I." action figures and need to find a new way to sell them.
