Pit crews crucial in race day success

SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) — Pit crews were preparing for the big day on Sunday and they told 24-Hour News 8 it takes a lot of work to get the drivers ready.

Rich Meredith of Adretti Auto Sports was in pit row to talk more about what members of the crew do and what would happen if rain were to be a factor on Sunday. He said there is no room for mistakes so they double and even triple check things.

Members of the pit crew each have their own task to make sure race days go as smooth as they can.

Meredith says it’s the team that has the least amount of mistakes that can win the race.
