Race car beaten with a sledgehammer at Hays track

KSAL StaffOctober 17, 2013

Authorities in northwest Kansas are looking for whoever took a sledgehammer to a race car at the RPM Speedway in Hays.

The Hays Daily News reports that the damage apparently happened Saturday as driver Chadd Brown was watching the final three races with relatives. Brown had left his modified dirt-track racer on an open trailer in the overflow pit area northeast of the track.

Brown says a track official heard someone beating and banging but thought it was a racer working on his car. Damage is estimated at about $9,000.

Brown says he “can’t believe someone would stoop to that level.”

Ellis County authorities are asking the public to call with tips. And Brown’s friends are offering a $1,000 reward to help solve the crime.
