MORROW, GA (WALB) - There are stolen cars, and then there are stolen cars covered with sponsor logos, and 700 horsepower engines under the hood. 

And the latter has north Georgia officers scouring the roads for an unmarked white trailer that contains NASCAR driver Reed Sorenson's #44 Chevy, owned by Travis Kvapil.  The trailer was towed by a dual-wheel pickup truck.

Sorenson, a Peachtree City native, is back in Georgia for the Folds of Honor Quick Trip 500, set for Sunday afternoon at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

A source inside the race team said that the trailer was parked outside a hotel in Morrow Thursday night, and by Friday morning, it was gone.

USA Today reports that a Jeep Cherokee was seen near the trailer about 5:30 a.m. Friday. The race car, and a spare engine in the trailer, were valued at $350,000, they said.

On February 9, Sorenson was signed by Team XTREME Racing to compete in the Daytona 500 with sponsorship from Golden Corral. Sorenson joined RAB Racing for the Folds of Honor Race Race.

Sorenson was due to qualify for Sunday's NASCAR race in Atlanta Friday, but in a different car.
