Bobby East was stabbed to death this week by a homeless man at a California gas station, and his killer is still on the loose, according to cops.
The 37-year-old NASCAR driver was stabbed in the chest Wednesday while fueling up at a station in Westminster, Calif, The Sun reported. Emergency responders tried to keep him alive, but East died at a local trauma center.
According to The Post, cops are searching for Trent William Millsap.
A statement from Westminster Police Department described 6-foot five-inch Millsap as a “transient and known to frequent Westminster, Garden Grove, and Anaheim motels.” Pictures released by the department show Millsap covered with tattoos on his head, face, neck, chest, arms, and hands.
East was a three-time US Auto Club champion. He won 56 career USAC-sanctioned victories, 48 of them in national divisions.
He also won three USAC national driving titles: the USAC National Midgets title in 2014 and back-to-back USAC Silver Crown championships in 2012 and 2013.
