The hauler containing Sebastien Bourdais’ #11 Dallara-Chevrolet caught fire in Peoria, AZ, on its way to Phoenix International Raceway.
Team co-owner Jimmy Vasser told Motorsport.com he did not have all the details yet, but ABC News reports that the Department of Public Safety said the fire started around one of the axles.
The driver of the truck was working to put out the fire with an extinguisher when crews arrived, and no injuries have been reported.
The transporter was heading to PIR for Saturday’s Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix. Practice begins on Friday.
