It’s one thing to see bumping and banging on the track in a NASCAR race. It’s another to see bumping and banging between NASCAR team planes.
The latter instance occurred last night at Concord (N.C.) Regional Airport, where according to the Charlotte Observer, a Joe Gibbs Racing plane made contact with a parked plane from Stewart Haas Racing while teams were coming home from yesterday’s Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis.
Per the Observer, the wing of JGR’s plane collided with the tail of the SHR plane. An SHR spokesman said that no one was injured in the incident.
Jesse Sanders, a crewman for the No. 20 JGR team for driver Matt Kenseth, tweeted a shot of the damage:
This is not the first time this year that SHR has had issues involving a team plane.
Last month, an SHR plane had its windshield crack in mid-flight as it was flying from the completed race weekend at Sonoma Raceway in California. The team members aboard were moved to planes from JGR and Hendrick Motorsports at a refueling stop.
