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 $200 product certificate to use at PitBoxes.com.

Three races. Three cars. Two states.
That was the story for Bubba Pollard and the Pollard Motorsports team during a four-day stretch in June.
Pollard began "Mission Impossible" on Friday, June 8 at Birch Run Speedway in Michigan. After winning the $10,000 race that night, Pollard and a few crew members hopped on a plane the next morning and made their way to Anderson Motor Speedway in South Carolina where he later won the $10,000 Southern Super Series/CARS Tour Border War 150.
After a day off to enjoy their pair of victories, Pollard and his crew made their way back to Michigan for the $20,000 Money in the Bank 150 at Berlin Raceway (MI).
Pollard was leading the race with less than 10 laps to go before losing the lead to Brian Campbell on a late-race restart.
Despite coming up just one spot short of the $40,000 trifecta that weekend, Pollard and his crew grabbed the attention of the racing world by trying to accomplish a rare feat.
There's no denying the amount of preparation, hard work and determination that it took in order to tackle this busy stretch. As a result, the Pollard Motorsports team has been awarded the PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Month for June.
Race fans can go behind the scenes of Pollard's busy stretch by watching "Bubba Pollard: Mission Impossible," a short film produced by Speed51 Films.
