Is this an actual theft of Danica Patrick's race car or do my eyes deceive me? First we had this "cell phone video" a few days ago.
Then we got this "surveillance video".
Then there came this statement from co-owner Kim Green onthe AGR site that reads:
“I am disappointed that this video was leaked because it creates an unnecessary distraction as we prepare for the 93rd running of the Indianapolis 500. We are in contact with the individuals in the video and are making progress in getting the car returned prior to Opening Day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We have no further information to offer at this time and will provide additional details as they become available.”
And now we've got this "News clip".
Can't wait for those "additional details" from Andretti Green over the coming days. Oh, the drama of Indy.
UPDATE: The intrepid Curt Cavin is on the case.
Danica theft a hoaxI'd just like to add I feel a certain warmth for the word "hoax", manly because it reminds me of old episodes of "Columbo" and "The Night Stalker". It's a very 70s word.
A surveillance camera video circulating the Internet is real, but the alleged theft of a Danica Patrick race car is a hoax, a team member said today.
Andretti Green Racing spokesmen still haven't confirmed the story either way except for a carefully crafted response by team co-owner Kim Green that says the "leaked" video has become a distraction.
The team will unveil its Indianapolis 500 paint scheme on Friday at 10 a.m. near the Indianapolis airport. Patrick will be present.
