Americus - Americus based G-Squared racing is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrests of the thieves who stole several hundred thousand dollars of race equipment including their NHRA pro stock racing motorcycle in Omaha Nebraska overnight.
G-Squared co-owner George Bryce says the truck was stolen from the parking lot of a hotel in Omaha Nebraska overnight and found Wednesday afternoon in the Omaha area.
The contents of the truck- their NHRA racing motorcycle, racing engines and other motorcyles were stolen along with the tools and the uniform of race driver Chip Ellis- were all stolen.
The thieves also vandalized the inside of the hauler.
The hauler was coming from Sonoma, California where the G-Squared team raced last weekend and was making its way to Minnesota for a race next weekend.
Bryce says the transporter was packed to be on the road for four NHRA events over the next six weeks.
The G-Squared team with driver Chip Ellis is currently sixth in the pro stock motorcycle season point standings and are only 107 points off the lead at just past the halfway point of the NHRA pro stock motorcycle schedule.
Jackie Bryce says unless the racing bike is recovered, the team at this point doesn't know what they are going to do for next week's race in Minnesota.
