Nitro methane burns yellow. The spectacular white flame seen above the stacks at night is raw burning hydrogen, dissociated from atmospheric water vapor by the searing exhaust gases.

I do know in many states you are not required to pull over for an unmarked vehicle, much less a POV. A reasonable officer would simply call it in and tail them from a distance if they had done something wrong.
