Wood Brothers Racing hauler involved in crash on way back from Texas
The Wood Brothers Racing hauler containing Paul Menard’s NASCAR Cup car was reportedly involved in a traffic crash this morning in Birmingham, Alabama.
The hauler and rig were reportedly on their way back from Texas Motor Speedway to the team’s home base in Mooresville, North Carolina, when the accident occurred.
A team spokesman told NBC Sports: “We can confirm that our team’s race hauler was involved in an accident in Birmingham, as it was returning to Mooresville from Ft. Worth. There were no injuries and our transportation team was not at fault. The tractor was the only piece of equipment damaged.”
The team’s Twitter account also had the following posts:
Everyone’s ok. Except for the tractor. That’s another story— Wood Brothers Racing (@woodbrothers21) April 1, 2019
⬇️From one of our two transportation team members.⬇️ No people were injured. Hauler was fine (car wasn’t even in the hauler because NASCAR had it in theirs) just the tractor was injured. We will be at Bristol this weekend minus one @MenardsRacing yellow tractor (for now anyway) https://t.co/oWt8WQfo3K— Wood Brothers Racing (@woodbrothers21) April 2, 2019
