Behind every great driver is a great team. The crew members that put in countless hours at the shop and at the track sometimes do not receive the recognition deserved for a job well done. The combination of a great driver and a great crew is the recipe for making great things happen on the track.
That’s why the team at PitBoxes.com, who specialize in fabricating a high quality line of standard and custom pit boxes, is proud to honor a monthly “Pit Crew of the Month” from the short track ranks of America on Speed51.com. Each month, an esteemed panel of short track industy insiders will vote on which pit crew helped lead their driver to success on the track. The pit crew with the most votes will then be the “PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Month” and will receive a $100 product certificate to use at PitBoxes.com. At the end of the 2016 season, the pit crew that received the most votes throughout the season will then be the “PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Year” and will be awarded a $1,000 product certificate to PitBoxes.com.

This edition of the “PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Month” for the month of June goes to……
Preslar Brothers Motorsports
Pro Late Models
Jay Jay Day was supposed to make his Pro Late Model debut for the Preslar Brothers Motorsports team at Alabama’s Mobile International Speedway in twin 50-lap features on Saturday, June 25. But a mechanical issue (ignition coil) caused Day to miss the first of those features.
Instead of that being the end of their night, the Preslar Brothers team led by crew chief Kevin Rehwinkle worked as fast as possible to get the problem fixed. The team got Day out on the race track one lap before the green flag fell on the start of the second 50-lap feature.
Day started at the rear of the field and quickly made his way to the front of the field. The former Bomber driver went from last to first to win his very first Pro Late Model start.
It is for that reason that the Preslar Brothers Motorsports team has been named Speed51’s PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Month for June.
