PitStopUSA.com, “The Online Motorsports Superstore,” started with a racer and an idea.


In 1998, company founder Ed Coughenour was competing in the NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Tour Series and working as Vice President Sales for Memorex. On a flight home from a sales call with Amazon.com he recognized that motorsports could provide an ideal opportunity for a one-stop online shopping website for racers.


April 1, 2000, the first PitStopUSA.com website was launched pioneering the motorsports retail channel as one of the very first online motorsports retail stores. In the years 2000 to 2002, when the bottom fell out of the dot-com industry and hundreds of dot-com companies went bankrupt, PitStopUSA.com held steadfast and soldiered on continuing to develop the motorsports online retail marketplace.


Fast forward 19 years, PitStopUSA.com now carries over 125,000 products from over 650 brands and has become one of the leading retailers in the motorsports industry. What sets PitStopUSA.com apart from the competition is that the company specializes in driver’s safety equipment, a category that the company makes the top priority and recognizes as the most important products they offer.


“Working with drivers in all forms of motorsports over the years we know that each driver has different needs,” said Andrew Richardson, general manager of PitStopUSA.com.  We focus on understanding the needs of each customer so we can suggest products that will work best for them.”


PitStopUSA.com has extensive knowledge and almost two decades of experience with the safety equipment products they offer and are committed to providing customers with the correct gear for their type of racing and budget. PitStopUSA.com offers the best selection of driver safety equipment of any online retailer for all types of racing. Whether its circle track racing, road racing, drag racing, off-road racing or anything in between, PitStopUSA.com has everything racers and crew members need.


To accommodate the rapid growth of the company, PitStopUSA.com relocated their corporate headquarters, safety equipment warehouse and retail showroom from Petaluma, California to Meridian, Idaho in February 2018. It was a year of transition that allowed the company to build a facility from the ground up and position itself to continue expansion of its product offerings and improve their service levels for their customers. In addition to the Meridian warehouse, the company ships parts and accessories from their Michigan warehouse allowing delivery to the Midwest and East Coast in two business days. A combination of fast shipping, great prices and excellent customer service puts the team at PitStopUSA.com one step ahead of the competition. In racing, that is everything. 


“We are committed to providing our customers with an outstanding selection of products at low everyday prices,” commented Ed Coughenour, President / CEO of the company. “We are continuously developing and implementing new technology and services to provide our customers the best possible service levels.”


PitStopUSA.com offers free shipping on Driver Safety Gear orders over $99. In addition, PitStopUSA.com offers free shipping on tens of thousands of other racing parts, accessories and supplies. The company offers a variety of unique promotions, financing options and low everyday prices providing customers with the best value in motorsports.


This year, PitStopUSA.com will be working with an expanded roster of drivers to represent the company across the country.


“We have established ourselves heavily in the West Coast Sprint Car ranks over the years. We are looking forward to putting our PitStopUSA.com drivers to serve as brand ambassadors to help spread the word about our company”, commented Kyle Tellstrom, Marketing Manager at PitStopUSA.com.


Currently, the PitStopUSA.com driver roster includes Sprint Car Drivers Andy Forsberg, Chase Johnson, Colby Johnson, Joe Stornetta Jr. and Shayna Sylvia. Asphalt Super Late Model standout Jeremy Doss and West Coast Asphalt Modified competitor Kyle Tellstrom signed for the 2019 season. More drivers are set to be announced at a later date.
