Mike Harmon was arrested on Wednesday before he was charged with breaking and entering, and larceny, reported WIS-TV. He was later released on $10,000 bond.
He is accused of stealing a trailer owned by ASCAR Camping World Truck Series team and driver Jennifer Jo Cobb.
But Harmon denied the charges against him.
“I’ve been around for a long time, but I’ve never stolen so much as a piece of bubble gum and to be arrested for a felony is ridiculous,” Harmon told the station. “I did not take her hauler, I’ve not been to her shop and how they convince the law to put a warrant out after me, I don’t know,” he said.
According to Yahoo Sports, the trailer is valued at more than $250,000.
Harmon added on Twitter: “I did not take JJC hauler, there is no video of me anywhere near her shop. Today she was the windshield & I was the bug, but when we get in FEDERAL court in a couple wks there’s a boulder coming.”
Cobb, however, said on Facebook that she did not accuse anyone of any crime.
“Very important clarification: I have not accused or alleged any person in this crime. Arrests have been made based on evidence and eye witness accounts. Now… Lets go racing!” she said in a post on Thursday.
