Wood Brothers Racing Hauler Involved in Accident Returning from Texas Motor Speedway

The Wood Brothers Racing No. 21 hauler carrying the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series car of Paul Menard was involved in a crash on its way home from Texas Motor Speedway.

The accident happened Monday morning (April 1) in Birmingham, Ala. Luckily, no one was seriously hurt while the hauler only suffered minor damage.

“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,” a spokesman for the race team told NBC Sports. “There were no injuries and our transportation team was not at fault. The tractor was the only piece of equipment damaged.”

The Wood Brothers team also posted about the incident on their Twitter page.

The team and Menard had suffered through a difficult weekend at TMS. At one point, the No. 21 Ford was up to third but they had to pit under green for a tire issue. Menard was then caught a lap down for the remainder of the race, just missing a Lucky Dog opportunity and wound up 19th.

The Wood Brothers weren’t the only team involved in a crash, either. The RSS Racing hauler from NASCAR’s Xfinity Series was reportedly also involved in an accident. This one happened Saturday (March 30) according to Jamie Little on Twitter.

Sieg’s team was coming off their first stage win as an organization in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He ran 10th in the race, his fourth top-10 finish in six NXS starts this season.
