Travis Kvapil's race car stolen; Denny Hamlin's motorhome wrecked

   It's been an eventful morning at Atlanta Motor Speedway so far with one Sprint Cup Series driver's race car allegedly stolen and another driver's motorhome sustaining damage from a SUV that somehow rolled down an embankment and through a fence.

   Team Xtreme, which planned to field an entry this weekend with driver Travis Kvapil, reported a truck and small hauler stolen from its hotel parking lot in Morrow, Ga., this morning. Inside the hauler was the No. 44 Chevrolet Kvapil planned to run Sunday's Folds of Honor 500.

   The incident was first reported by TV station KFVS-12. 

   Without the car, the team was forced to withdraw from the race.

   Here are Twitter posts from Kvapil referring to the incident:

   Also this morning, Cup crew chief Rodney Childers posted a picture on Twitter of a white SUV that somehow rolled backwards through a fence, down an embankment and into a motorhome owned by driver Denny Hamlin.

   According to a team spokesman, the owner of the SUV thought he had put the vehicle in park. He had not and it rolled down the hill causing superficial damage to the motorhome. 


  1. I hate to see that about Travis. He sure could use a break. Keep your chin up, man. It will get better.

  2. It's really helpful when Revers and Van-dwellers show photos like you have, it really helps the rest of us get a better vision of what we want.
    That model is starting to look good, just like Alice. Keep working on it and give us updates as you go along.
