Reward offered for stolen firesuit worn by Rusty Wallace

1 Comment

Check Ebay, the nearest pawn shop, even local garage sales.

Or, if someone offers to sell you an authentic Rusty Wallace firesuit, call your local police deparment.

Someone, somewhere, knows where Wallace’s firesuit is.

The last firesuit the NASCAR Hall of Famer wore – earlier this year when he took part in some practice laps at Daytona International Speedway – is missing and presumed stolen.

Rusty’s son, Greg, on Wednesday posted on his Twitter account the tweet below, claiming the suit was apparently lifted from within the Team Penske headquarters in Mooresville, N.C.

“Reward for return – no questions asked,” Greg Wallace’s tweet said.

The elder Wallace, who is in his final season as a NASCAR analyst for ESPN, wore identical firesuits with the current driver of Wallace’s old No. 2 car, Brad Keselowski, during a promotion for primary sponsor Miller Lite Beer.

Holmatro, a long-time partner of INDYCAR and title sponsor of the Holmatro Safety Team, have renewed a long-standing partnership that will see Holmatro and INDYCAR continue their partnership in a five-year contract extension.

“Holmatro has been a trusted partner and supplier in Indy car racing for more than 20 years,” said president of competition and operations Jay Frye. “Holmatro’s growth parallels some of the great strides made in safety for INDYCAR drivers and teams. We’re pleased to see this partnership continue, as it is a great benefit to everyone in the paddock.”

Holmatro’s relationship with INDYCAR dates back to 1991, when they first supplied tools to the safety team of the CART sanctioned PPG IndyCar World Series. Holmatro branding will continue to be featured on the firesuits, vehicles, and transporters of INDYCAR’s safety team throughout the agreement.

“Holmatro is extremely pleased to extend our partnership with INDYCAR for another five years,” said Tony Barboza, general manager for Holmatro. “We’re extremely proud to be affiliated with the premier on-track safety team in the world. Members of the safety team serve on their home fire departments when not at INDYCAR events and, like them, we believe in constant improvement and innovation. When the race is for life, you can count on the INDYCAR Safety Team and Holmatro rescue tools.”
