“STOLEN: My YFZ and Grayson Eller’s were stolen last night out of the trailer in Amarillo, Texas. Please repost and keep an eye out if you’re in the area! Phoenix Racing ATV Team”
That was the statement left by the three-time ATV national motocross champion on his Facebook fan page yesterday. The thieves broke the lock on the large enclosed trailer and stole both ATVs during a hotel stay in Amarillo.
We haven’t been able to contact Joel Hetrick about the incident, but we assume he was on his way to the highly publicized Huevos Invitational in Nevada, where pro ATV racers from all over the country will be competing for a winner-take-all $10,000 purse.
If you spot the machine (seen in these photos) or have any information about the theft, please notify local authorities and contact Hetrick directly via email: Hetrick814@hotmail.com.
