Ah yes, life in the pits. It’s the place where hope and dreams are made or dashed. A place where knuckles are busted and race cars are prepared and repaired. But, beyond the work it’s also a place where lifelong friendships are formed, where families wait and work and at the end of the day, when the track goes cold, beverages can be shared and as the stories go on all of the cars get a little faster.
The race track pits are also a great place to learn things, if you’re a spectator or a fellow racer there are things to see and take in. If you’re contemplating entering the wonderful world of racing there’s no better place, to get advice on any level, than the pits. Given this, we took a stroll through the pits during the Super Chevy Show 2016 at Memphis International Raceway. As always we came away amused, a little smarter and enjoyed meeting some racers. So, next time you’re at a race track, any type of race track, take a walk through the pits it really is memory lane.
