Default Someone stole my pit bag at silverstate!

Guys, someone stole my red and black "husky" pit bag at the Silverstate, Nitro challenge on the weekend of 3/11 thru the 3/14. I had an exergen temp gun, wheel wrench, glow ignitor, tuning screwdriver, and 1 extra P4 glow plug in the bag. If you've seen it, I would appreciate a call or email. My direct number is 702-348-9664 and my email is Brian.Mercado1@gmail.com

Thanks

Man that sucks. I remember you coming through the pits looking for it. People suck sometimes. I would have thought that someone picked it up on accident but looks like it was on purpose. I was talking to sme guys from Quebec at the nitro challange in az last month and they said you have to lock everything up even when you go race because people up there steal all the time. I do know that whoever took your bag will have nothing but broken parts and dnf's until he gives it back. I'll keep an eye out around my area. Good luck.

Yea it sucks but big races always bring out the idiot little thieves. I hope whoever stole it fesses up and returns it. Also should be banned from future events if caught

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hate thieves we had a few "guys" that were walking in the pits that didnt look right....eyeballing my buddies car. I saw them from a far and we went up and just said hi. first word was is it forsale...We said no and they left like the wind. Just think of the $$$ just laying around at an average of 2 k per car...

you also have to consider that it could be a legitimate mistake.

I mean really, who wants a "husky" bag?? Glo plug? wrench?

It was probably a mistake.

Not much risk reward there my friend.

I have picked up the wrong starter box before and figured it out before i left.


just maybe he thought your buggy was in it. WHo ever got it was probably pissed when he opened it

Sorry to hear about that. Did you have a wrap of some sort on the exergen gun? Not very likely but you could possibly see it for sale somewhere....

KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED

Thanks guys, hopefully I'll run across it somewhere someday!

ya, the big thing was the temp gun, and what really sucks is that I just bought a engraving tool, like a week before and didn't use it, bonehead move! I don't care about the other items, jus the temp gun, sure would like to have it back.

Man theres no mistake about having someone elses equipment. I found a cheap PE temp gun on the track itself that worked and I turned it in. I use those temp guns and I know it was not mine so that means it belongs to someone else... There is no mistake when its not your stuff.
