Today’s season-altering NASCAR Cup Series race at Martinsville was briefly delayed by a Chevrolet Camaro pace car breaking down from the front of the field. After some confusion, a safety truck with its own set of flashing lights took over at the front of the field for the remainder of the caution period.

In a statement, a representative from Chevrolet noted that:

“rubber debris from the track damaged the wiring harness to the fuel pump, disabling the pace car. NASCAR has transferred to the back-up pace car to continue official pace car duties for the balance of the race.”

That car then paced the remainder of the event.
