Update! I spoke with Brian this morning. They're still searching for the trailer and race car. Keep an eye out for the pictured items above.

^I have to wonder how often that sort of thing has been happening. Race car trailers get stolen on the assumption that they're full of valuable tools, and the thieves mostly end up with race cars which are hard to fence...

Such a senseless waste.  $200k worth of trailer contents destroyed in the quest of a trailer that the thief might sell for less than $3k

The Florida man story is bizarre.   What an effort he put in to all that burying.  Knucklehead.

That's insane. 
 

Not only did the idiot bury the stuff, but he dug it up???  Did he think he was gonna return it??

Geez.

In reply to SV reX :

I think the saying "they don't catch the smart ones" applies here.

This guy is an accurate representation of the Ocala area "florida man".

Saw a black trailer in Arlington. Stopped to look but it wasn't it. I bet it's on the meth side of Jacksonville.
