JD Motorsports w/ Gary Keller and the No. 4 team have already had their fair share of adversity to overcome this weekend in Texas, the hauler carrying Jesse Little’s car for Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, was spotted broken down in transit to the track.
An avid TobyChristie.com reader sent in the photo of the broken down hauler from JD Motorsports, captured at 8:05 PM EST / 7:05 PM CST near exit 63 on the westbound lanes of Interstate 35, approximately nine miles (twelve minutes) away from Texas Motor Speedway.
Scott Reavis of JD Motorsports, told TobyChristie.com that in transit to Texas Motor Speedway, the hauler experienced an issue with two of the fan belts malfunctioning. Upon an attempt to repair the belts, by the team’s mechanics, there were further issues with the hauler’s tensioning rod.
Additionally, Reavis mentioned that the hauler has since arrived at Texas Motor Speedway, ensuring that Jesse Little and the No. 4 team will be able to go forward tomorrow afternoon without any difficulties.
Little, the first year driver for JD Motorsports, has put forward an incredible string of eight consecutive Top 20 finishes, dating back to Atlanta Motor Speedway in June. Through 15 events this season, Little has scored one top-ten finish, along with seven top 15s and 11 top 20s, currently sitting 18th in NASCAR Xfinity Series Point Standings.
Little will start 20th in Saturday’s race at Texas Motor Speedway, the second-highest of any of the four JD Motorsports entries.
