Hendrick Motorsports is sending a backup hauler to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the No. 24 team after the one transporting the race car caught fire on Thursday.
RACER was told a generator was the cause of the fire, which was observed outside the racetrack. William Byron’s No. 24 Chevrolet was not damaged by the blaze, but the team will work out of the backup hauler. NASCAR is allowing the team to put the car in the garage tonight and also swap out the necessary equipment from the primary hauler.
