Racecars are brought to the track in transporters or ‘haulers'. The haulers are normal 18 wheel tractor-trailers that have been specially modified to provide a ‘shop of wheels' for teams. The haulers carry two racecars to the track, the primary and the backup, both carried overhead. The rest of the trailer is modified with cabinets, a workbench, storage and a lounge area for crewmembers and drivers. Because the haulers attract a great deal of attention wherever they go, as much planning and perpetration go into the paint schemes on the massive rigs and the racecars themselves.
