Nathan Owen has been a soldier with the National Guard for over five and a half years. He has served our country in Iraq during that time. Today Nathan heads out for his two week annual training with the National Guard. Also today Nathan found out his customized 1985 Toyota 4×4 had been stolen. All this on a weekend when we memorialize our veterans.
This is a truck that Nathan had been pouring money into with the hopes of using it as a “push truck” at the Cottage Grove Speedway this year. A speedway that Nathan’s family has been actively helping for years. Nathan’s father, Ernie Owen, is a well known icon at the Cottage Grove Speedway.
Nathan is hoping that we can all work together to get the information about his stolen truck out there, and that the people responsible can be brought to justice. It’s the least we can do for this soldier.
Here is some of the information on Nathan’s stolen truck:
