Veteran Family Business victim of a smash and grab in Waco Texas
With a heavy heart, we report that Munn Racing of Waco TX was the victim of a smash and grab. “They loaded an entire horse trailer in minutes,” said owner Chip Munn.
Son of Army Veteran Harry Munn, Harry II (Chip) is deeply saddened by this sign of the times.
The theft happened Thursday, 1.27.23 from his headquarters in Waco, Texas. Chip remains steadfast in giving back to the community. For months Chip and his team have planned an experience to serve the community in conjunction with KPNUSA.com. This Sunday, February 5th, from 10 am-4 pm you can arrive, demo, place pre-orders, and, most importantly, hug Chip.
Where: 3 Palms Action Park 15100 Interstate 45 S. Conroe, TX 77384
Waivers and costs apply to arrive at the Munn Racing Semi but when you do, you will be appreciated especially considering the challenges.
Chip shared the following with Knowlege Point Network: KPNUSA.com
“It’s an awful feeling. A mixture of embarrassment, sadness, and wondering, why us? How could this happen? We took every precaution with security cameras and steel-reinforced barriers. We fortified the weakest entry point but that is the side they broke in. They just ripped the iron gate open, drove a truck through the side of the building, and started loading. It’s awful for anyone, but we are just a small shop. It feels like they came right into our home. I am so glad my Father is not alive to see this. Just 6 short months ago, we laid him to rest. Honorably discharged from the army, my father Harry was instrumental in 1999 as he supported our dream to start a business. It was my Fathers’ love that gave me the courage to turn my love of motorcycles into Munn Racing. We are best known for our Trackside support in the motocross community, equally passionate training our staff to ensure hands-on support when it’s needed most.”
Please aid the effort in pursuit. This may be one of the largest thefts of motorcycles to be taken from a veteran family business in Texas history. Email or call Deputy Mark Mocuta mark.macuta@mclennan,tx.us 254-757-5222 254-757-5095
