NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Landon Cassill is trying to find his 2008 BMW M6 that was stolen this week off the lot of his father’s car dealership.
Roger Cassill told KCRG-TV (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) that a salesman at his Cassill Motors dealership showed the BMW to an interested buyer on Saturday and left the keys in it.
The next night, two men came to the dealership and took the keys. Surveillance video shows the same men circling the parking lot late Tuesday, and early Wednesday morning, the car was taken – and not by the buyer who had originally looked at it.
Landon, who also drives in the Nationwide Series, has spread the word on Twitter about his missing car:
Additionally, the dealership has offered a $6,000 reward ($3,000 in cash, $3,000 for his/her favorite charity) for information that leads to the return of the car and the arrest of the thieves.
The dealership’s blog notes that based off some early tips, the car may still be in the Cedar Rapids area.
