So the vette was hit by street racers. The street racers are at fault.

Definitely a C7 based on the rims and the seats.

Now, troopers are looking for him. They say he has arm tattoos and is bald. If you have any information, you can contact FHP.
Anyone in here??

I think they found the vette driver. Appears they are looking for the driver of the mustang that won the race.

Most C7 wheels come bent from bowling green, at no extra charge.

I could not tell what year it was.

From what I have heard so far, the driver survived.
