it was a removable wheel and one of the pranksters in his group hid it on the driver, Dale Earnhardt Sr. did that to Rusty Wallace once right before a race, but that's OK, the next week Rusty got even, he put a can of tuna fish in oil under the seat on Earnhardt's car, did Dale ever start complaining once the race started and that can of tuna started getting hot.
