Jackie and George Bryce
Below are quotes that G2 Motorsports’ George Bryce gave to NHRA.com’s Rob Geiger regarding the theft of the team’s truck.
“The idiots that stole our truck must have been smart enough to know it would be impossible to get very far on the highway with that truck,” Bryce said. “Chip [Ellis] had been scrambling all over town looking for places where someone could hide a rig when we got a call that it was seen sitting on the side of the road. The police and Chip made a beeline for the location and found the truck.
“You couldn’t have picked a worse time for this to happen. We were loaded up for the road trip, plus we had picked up a bunch of new chassis’ on the way. Everything is gone.
“This whole deal seems preconceived to me. It’s like Chip was stalked, like someone knew what was inside. That rig is our home away from home and we feel completely violated.”
“We’re offering a $10,000 reward for any information that might help us catch these punks and put them in jail,” Bryce said. “I don’t know where they’d be able to sell this stuff because it’s all custom made and numbered.
“Thankfully, no one was hurt. This is a big blow to our program, but everything can be replaced over time. Chip’s okay, and that’s the most important thing.”
