CONCORD, N.C – NASCAR pit crew members have to be the best of the best. One small mistake could make the difference between a win and a second-place finish.
To ensure Hendrick Motorsports has the best crews on the circuit, the organization holds a pit-crew combine annually. At the combine, hopeful athletes learn and apply skills as a part of the tryout process to be on Hendrick Motorsports’ roster.
This year’s combine was held in the heat of the summer. Candidates worked for days as they learned from coaches and current pit crew athletes and took their shot at making pit stops in the same atmosphere as Hendrick Motorsports pit crew practice.
