ARCA Racing Series driver Tim Richmond has said on Facebook that his team’s racing equipment has been stolen. He announced that Wayne Peterson’s truck, trailer, and ARCA race car was stolen outside of a Kansas City, Kansas hotel.
Richmond said that the alleged thief happened outside of the Hampton Inn near Kansas Speedway. No other details have been provided about what time the incident happened.
“Hello Racing Friends and Family, our whole racing team has been stolen from the Hamilton Inn last night right outside of Kansas speedway,” Richmond said in a Facebook post. “If everyone can please share this, hopefully our team can recover our items back.”
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.
At this time, there has been no information on if the truck, trailer, and race car has been recovered.
Mike Harmon Racing also asked the Kansas racers to look out for the equipment.
“Kansas area racers and friends be on the lookout,” Mike Harmon Racing said in a Facebook post. “ARCA Series race car and hauler was stolen last night!”
