New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Toyota Racing are offering one lucky fan the opportunity of a lifetime to become an honorary pit crew member for a day. The winning fan will have the opportunity to help the Red Horse Racing team of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series during the F.W. Webb 175 at NHMS on Saturday, Sept. 24. Red Horse Racing fields the No. 7 team of Miguel Paludo and the No. 17 of Timothy Peters.
As a pit crew member for the day, you will have many opportunities to help these crews prepare for the race. On race day, you will help the crew set up the pit box for the race, attend the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers meeting and the team meeting in the No. 17 hauler, stand with the team during the national anthem and sit atop the No. 7 pit box for the first pit stop. You will also receive a gift bag from Red Horse Racing, have the opportunity to get autographs from both Paludo and Peters and will be provided with a scanner to listen in during the race.
