The hauler transporting the No. 52 Chevrolet Jimmy Means Racing car raced by Joey Gase in Saturday night’s VisitMyrtleBeach.com 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, a back-up car and other equipment caught fire about 80 miles from the team’s race shop on its way there from Kentucky Speedway. A team member was inured trying to help firefighters who responded to the incident.
“Unfortunately our trip back home didn’t go as well as the race did for us last weekend,” a Facebook post Monday from Joey Gase Racing read. “The team’s transporter caught on fire about 80 miles from the shop and is completely ruined. Everything on our pit box (computers, seats, etc.) are all destroyed as well. We haven’t been able to get the cars down yet (one we are hoping to use this weekend in Dover) but we are hoping for just smoke damage. Also, keep our crew member Jared in your prayers as he sustained a hand injury while trying to help the firefighters.”
