Bobby Petrino's motorcycle for sale
By Edward Aschoff
For a few thousand dollars, you could own a piece of controversial Arkansas football history.
The website Copart.com is selling the motorcycle that former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino wrecked on April 1. That was the day that started the firestorm that eventually led to athletic director Jeff Long firing Petrino after the coach withheld information about an affair that he carried on with a football employee he hired, Jessica Dorrell. Dorrell was with Petrino when he wrecked.
According to Arkansassports360.com, it was confirmed Wednesday morning that the motorcycle, which is named "Hawg Wild" and has a current bid price of more than $3,000, is the one from Petrino's crash. The closing bid date is set for May 30.
The website's report also said that the motorcycle is being sold on behalf of an insurance company.
The listing says the motorcycle has a repair cost of $18,481 for front-end damage.
