Tires Reportedly Stolen from Brian Vickers, Ryan Truex Teams

It’s a mystery that could go unsolved.

This past weekend on Saturday night after the Jimmy John’s Freaky Fast 300 at Chicagoland Speedway in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, multiple tires were mysteriously swiped from two Sprint Cup teams in the garage area.

According to a report by Motorsport.com tires were taken from the No. 55 Toyota of Brian Vickers for Michael Waltrip Racing and from the No. 83 Toyota of Ryan Truex and BK Racing.

Tires that were taken from the No. 55 team were later found in another area of the garage area, while the sets from the No. 83 team have yet to be found.

Vickers and the No. 55 Camry finished 24th, while Ryan Truex finished 42nd in the No. 83 machine.
