Performance Instruction & Training (PIT) has been training the most sought after pit crew members since 2001. The eight-week Pit Crew U program lays the ground for well-rounded crewmen who understand all aspects of a pit stop and those selected to continue in the 5 Off 5 On Race Team Performance program hone their skills through practice and actual over-the-wall racing experience until they are ready to make that career move into the sport. Teams also utilize PIT’s state-of-the-art training facility for their practices and contract 5 Off 5 On students for their crews or recruit full-time employees. Graduates have gone on to win series championships in all divisions of stock car motorsports and Pit Crew U touts four consecutive individual All-Star Pit Crew Challenge Champions. Alumni of the program are now in Pit Crew Coordinator positions at many of racing’s most competitive teams.
