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.

As Lewis Hamilton took another step towards his fourth Formula 1 World Championship Sunday at the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas, plenty of other topics of discussion emerged in the wake of Round 17 of the season from Austin.

Hamilton’s win came as his Mercedes AMG Petronas team claimed its fourth consecutive Constructor’s Championship, Scuderia Ferrari came up short once again despite a valiant effort in second and third, and Max Verstappen’s penalty after the race was the major talking point.

Elsewhere Valtteri Bottas struggled again, the Sahara Force India twins continued to pick up points, Carlos Sainz Jr. made a major positive impact in his first start with Renault, Brendon Hartley impressed on debut at Toro Rosso and Romain Grosjean and Haas F1 Team endured a tough weekend on Haas’ home soil.
