The strategy to succeed doesn’t stop for the Farmers Insurance team when the car hits the track. Every aspect of the car is monitored during the race, from the fuel mileage and communication with Kasey, to the car’s handling and parts performance.
NASCAR races are unpredictable. It’s not uncommon for drivers and cars to make contact on track, and because of that, crews are required to react quickly in the pits to stay in contention for the win. While the crew keeps a number of tools and spare body parts in the pits, NASCAR mandates that cars sustaining moderate damage must report to the garage area for extended repairs.
