The vehicle that burnt is our friend and fellow TeamBSB teammate Mike Thomas in the 1409 Ranger.
He and his daughter Katie got out OK and were unharmed which is terrific!!
The cause of the fire is unknown, and the on board extinguishers were no match for the flames. The truck burnt for several hours into the evening time and is believed to be essentially a total loss, or very close to it.
Mr. Thomas and his family are great people. Mike led us in prayer prior to the race starting with a touching message to the Lord, so glad he and Katie got out safely.
If anyone has some spare parts or a couple dollars to help out with the re-build of the truck, Mike's son Kyle Thomas created a Gofund me with a parts list of what they'll be after in order to rebuild. Every little bit will certainly help, these are some of the most friendly people you will come across in racing.
