Black smoke clouded the skies above the Quaker State 400 after a pickup truck caught fire in the Kentucky Speedway parking lot Saturday night.
Kentucky Speedway General Manager Mark Simendinger said track responders rescued one occupant from inside the truck. The individual suffered minor injuries.
Several other nearby cars were also damaged.
The exact cause of the fire is unknown, but witnesses tweeted photos of a grill in the bed of the pickup truck.
