The Sporting News’ Bob Pockrass reported Wednesday part-time NASCAR Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series driver, Jennifer Jo Cobb (pictured), had her transporter stolen early Saturday morning from her race shop in North Carolina.
Nationwide driver Mike Joseph Harmon and Sheila Rae Race were issued warrants for their arrest by the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, according to Pockrass, for felony larceny and breaking and entering. Harmon, according to WBTV in Charlotte, was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.
Harmon said via Twitter he is in the litigation process with Cobb.
“I want it known that I have never stolen so much as a piece of bubble gum in my life. I did not take JJC hauler, there is no video of me anywhere near her shop. Today she was the windshield & I was the bug, but when we get in FEDERAL court in a couple wks there’s a boulder coming,” he wrote.
Harmon’s most noteworthy NASCAR moment prior to this came in 2002, when his car hit a gate post at Bristol and split in half. He emerged uninjured.
