CORNELIUS, N.C. (AP) - Police have released surveillance footage from a security camera at Denny Hamlin's home in hopes it will lend clues about the theft of a luxury car from the NASCAR star's driveway.
The 2008 Lexus LS was reported stolen Aug. 18. Footage shows a car pull up to the gate at Hamlin's suburban Charlotte home, and two men walk down his driveway. As the Lexus is pulled through the gate, a female can be seen walking around the waiting car and climbing into the driver seat.
Both cars then pull away.
A police report lists the car value at $50,000 and shows it is owned by Toyota Motorsales.
Hamlin is racing this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. He was not immediately available to comment.
