If you see an ad on Craigslist in the next few weeks that says something “NASCAR engine for sale - found on side of road,” you should be suspicious. WBTV 3 in Charlotte reports that thieves broke into the Roush/Yates Racing engine shop and made off with three of the motors used by the teams in the Nationwide and Craftsman Truck Series.
The total haul? More than $150,000, although you have to wonder what exactly they are planning on doing with them. Sounds like a particularly implausible episode of The Dukes of Hazzard to me.
