AVONDALE, Ariz. – Xfinity championship contender Daniel Hemric was without his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota on Friday morning because of an issue with the team’s hauler.
A spokesperson for Joe Gibbs Racing told NBC Sports on Friday that the team’s hauler, which had Hemric’s car, had a mechanical issue on the way to Phoenix. The hauler is expected to arrive at the track Friday night.
The team had a smaller trailer meet the hauler and transport the car to the track. The trailer is expected to get Hemric’s car to the track between 5-5:30 p.m. ET Friday. The car arrived shortly before 5:30 p.m. ET. Xfinity practice is scheduled from 6:05-6:55 p.m. ET Friday. A team spokesperson said the Xfinity team will use the team’s ARCA hauler and equipment today.
