Based at Yerington, Nevada, the crew
brings years of experience to the effort. Assisting
B.F. Goodrich racers needing trackside repairs, Pro Pit is a tightly organized crew. Years of local VORRA
racing support have expanded to support the Best in the Desert, MasterPull U.S.A. 500, Parker
races and even the Baja race events.
We caught up with the team at the
2011 VORRA MasterPull
U.S.A. 500 race. (See the MasterPull USA 500 coverage for more details!)They set up at a
remote pit area just past a rough stretch of the race course. In video coverage of that race, the essence

B.F. Goodrich tires on track!
At the 2011
Stampede Ultra4 Race, the Pro Pit team set up at the main pit area to meet the needs of B.F. Goodrich tire
users. In a quieter moment, we pulled Pat, the team leader, aside for a walkaround of Pro Pit's
trailer. This interview provides insight into race crew pitting and the equipment needed to keep desert
race vehicles rolling!
