You remember Mike Harmon and Jennifer Jo Cobb from earlier this year, right?

The journeyman NASCAR driver was alleged to have stolen Cobb’s race transporter, vehicle and other equipment in the spring. Equipment from Harmon’s garage was later seized by authorities.

Per a report from The Sporting News’ Bob Pockrass, larceny charges against Harmon have been dropped. Those charges were dropped on Friday by the Rowan County (N.C.) district attorney’s office.

Neither driver would really merit the news coverage on their own for on-track performance.

In 2013, Harmon has started seven Nationwide Series races (best finish of 17th at Daytona in February) and 10 Camping World Truck Series races (best finish 22nd at Talladega earlier this month), while Cobb has 14 Truck starts (best finish 17th of Kansas in April) and a solitary Nationwide start this year.

    So what happened, is there more to the story? I would like to see Jennifer Jo get some good backing because I think she is a better driver than some of the boys. Just as Johanna would do better in better equipment. Both of these girls could run circles around NASCARS leading lady with the right equipment. AND they both look like real women and are beautiful.

      Jennifer Jo Cobb?! You’re kidding right? JJC is basically a red-headed Milka Duno…except Milka probably is a better stock car driver than her.
