Race fan robbed at gunpoint

A Virginia man, here for the races at the NJMP was robbed at gun point in center city.

A Virginia man in town for a weekend race at the New Jersey Motorsports Park claims he was robbed at gunpoint on Saturday.

Martin Coberly, 19, Richmond, was following directions to the motorsports park when he stopped at a red light at the intersection of High and Broad streets.

While he was stopped, the Virginia man claimed to have been approached by a black male in his 40s, who demanded Coberly's wallet. The man had a black gun tucked away in his waist band.

Coberly gave up his wallet. The man took $33 from it and gave the wallet back before fleeing the scene.
Something just doesn't seem right with this story. If a person walks up to me with a gun, and I am in a vehicle, I am just going to run the red light and haul ass.

Was the guy with the gun a member of Track Racket?
