12: noon Carrollton, TX. Cigar metallic object traveling north at an incredible rate of speed for 20 seconds

I was driving north on I 35 when I glanced up and saw a cigar shaped metallic object with three seperating markings running cross ways on it. It had no wings and was about 50 yards away following north also. There was a plane between my car and the object and I noticed the plane was gaining on me slowly. I kept glancing up and the object was going very fast. It was a clear, sunny day and it was out of site in maybe 10 seconds. My nine year old granddaughter asked me what that was and I asked her what just to see what she would say and she said,"Not the plane, that other thing." I told her I did not know and she asked me if it was a UFO and I just repeated that I did not know. I didn't want to scare her.
