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.

This edition of the “PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Month” for the month of March goes to……
Generator Source / Newton Concrete Team
Super Late Models
It took the combined effort of two race teams to help get Preston Peltier to victory lane on Easter weekend at Hickory Motor Speedway. The Generator Source team based out of Colorado and the Newton Concrete team based out of North Carolina joined forces to help Peltier net his fifth career PASS Easter Bunny 150 victory.
After making the late decision to use the No. 48 Generator Source Super Late Model at Hickory, Peltier and the Colorado-based crew went to work to prepare the car. From there, Peltier drove 1,500 miles across the country from Colorado to North Carolina.
Upon arriving in North Carolina, Peltier took his car to the Newton Concrete shop to make final preparations for the Easter Bunny 150.
With a combined effort at the track between the teams, Peltier set a track record in qualifying before carrying the checkered flag later that night.
For their hard work and determination to get to Hickory Motor Speedway for the Easter Bunny 150, the Generator Source and Newton Concrete teams have been awarded the PitBoxes.com Pit Crew of the Month for the month of March.
