Insurance companies have (or used to have) people check out cars at the track to void their insurance in the event they claimed a track accident.

That of course is fraud anyway, but the point of covering your plate is hiding from the insurance scouts. Personally I don't cover mine because I know if I hit something I am paying.
Great first OP, may be sticky-material.
