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.

INDYCAR and Dallara revealed on Monday that a front wing extension will be made available to Verizon IndyCar Series teams to use as part of the super speedway aero package for the universal aero kits.

The extensions are expected to provide an increase in front downforce, by a minimum of three percent, and teams will be free to use them as needed. Dallara is also providing an additional wicker that can be used as a part of the extension.

The change comes in the wake of drivers voicing concerns about stability at the front of the car, especially while running in traffic – concerns which surfaced initially during Indianapolis 500 practice.

More details about the change can be viewed on IndyCar’s website.
