The items stolen was a 1999 Dodge Ram 3500 club cab truck, a 2001 42’ Pace gooseneck trailer, and a Toyota with Ilmor 396 motor race car. In addition, the team lost its pit box, tools, radio, gas cans, and more.

The 21-year-old has competed in 31 ARCA races in his career thus far. He finished 11th in the Speediatrics 150 at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas.

This is the second time in recent months that a NASCAR-affiliated team had their racing equipment stolen. Mike Harmon Racing had their racing equipment stolen in Georgia.
