World famous race car stolen

Posted: Updated:

Police in Palmetto are looking for a stolen trailer.

But this wasn't any ordinary trailer.

Inside was a world famous drag racing car and equipment worth more than $100,000.

The victim, David Tatum, is used to life in the fast lane.

He is well-known in the drag racing world, earning the title of World Champion in 2010.

Behind the wheel of his car, he has built his dreams and invested his earnings.

All of that - more than $100,000 worth - was housed in a trailer next to Tatum's workshop in Palmetto.

When he woke up Thursday, he noticed something was amiss.

When Tatum came out to take a closer look, the trailer, the car and every racing system he has built was gone.

Palmetto police told FOX 5 they are investigating the incident.

A spokesman said Thursday afternoon that investigators have no leads at this time.
