Multiple fire departments responded to the blaze at ThorSport’s 100,000-square foot race shop, with flames seen above the roofline.
The team issued a written statement this morning, saying, "Shortly after midnight on Monday morning, a fire broke out in the basement of the ThorSport Racing shop, located in Sandusky, Ohio. At this time, we can confirm that no one was injured. We are currently working with the fire department and local officials to contain the blaze, and assess the damage. We do not expect this to impact the team's competition schedule. Our next race is at Iowa Speedway in Newton on Saturday, June 18. Further details will be forthcoming."
