During the race Teamwork
Each trip down pit road is an opportunity for Kasey and the Farmers crew to improve their position. Because of the high caliber of competition on the track, the crew must perform at the highest-level possible when going over the wall, making adjustments and servicing the No. 5 Chevy SS. The smallest oversight during a pit stop can mean the difference between victory and defeat.
The No. 5 Farmers pit crew is comprised of two groups with slightly different areas of responsibility. The first team is responsible for getting the car through practice and qualifying and ready for race day. The second team, which goes over the wall during the race, travels only on race day, allowing them additional time in the gym for training and at the shop for pit practice. The Farmers team also has several backup pit crew members who serve as tire runners and fuel runners during the race.
