NSCS: Travis Kvapil’s Racecar Located Northwest of Atlanta Following Theft

Early Saturday morning, Travis Kvapil’s Racecar was located after being stolen from outside a motel early Friday morning.

Gwinnett County police found the car in Loganville, Georgia, which is located northwest of Atlanta. Officer Jeffrey Richter, a spokesman for the department, said a motorist reported seeing the car sitting on the side of Lenora Road at 2:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Police then headed out and secured the vehicle.

It has since been delivered back to the Team XTREME Racing shop.

Richter added that a couple of ramps and some strapping were left as well, but nothing else. They have yet to locate the truck and trailer.

Team Xtreme Racing ran into problems at Daytona after Reed Sorenson wrecked during group qualifying on Sunday. Not having a back-up, the team prepared another car and entered it into the Budweiser Duel, qualifying for the Daytona 500. As a result, though, they didn’t get the time they needed to work on their Atlanta car.

The car was sent in an enclosed 26-foot trailer pulled by a pickup, arriving at the team hotel on Thursday night at 11 pm EST. At approximately 5:32 am, a hotel surveillance video showed the theft occurring. Sgt. Larry Oglesby of the Morrow Police Department told ESPN.com that Team Xtreme Racing reported the theft at 5:50 a.m. and “they are treating the car’s disappearance as a stolen vehicle”.

The police report stated that a silver or grey Jeep Cherokee was spotted leaving the hotel at the time of the theft. They are asking for help in locating the vehicles – a black 2004 Ford F-350 pulling a white trailer. Both had New Jersey tags.
