A Richard Petty Motorsports transporter hauling the No. 43 Xfinity Series car and equipment was involved in a traffic accident Wednesday morning in Louisiana.

RPM officials issued a release that said RPM employee and transport driver Will Mallard was uninjured in the wreck and did not receive any citations.

And while the hauler suffered some damage, the team is sending another tractor to the scene to pick up the hauler and continue the trip to Texas Motor Speedway for this Saturday’s Xfinity race.

Track officials said the hauler and replacement tractor will arrive at TMS in time for Friday on-track activities.
