“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
One thing you will find that makes every Sportsman driver stand out from the pros, is that they will say they want to be MORE than a driver, they want to LEARN the mechanical side of their vehicle. This is just one of the reasons why I love being a Sportsman driver – the more we know about how our race car operates, the more competitive we are, and being competitive is the core of being a racer in the Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series.
When you take a walk down the sportsman pits, you will find drivers working on their cars, whether that’s changing the oil, putting in new spark plugs, fueling it up, or even helping change the rack or clutch, they are not afraid to get their hands dirty. They will make time for fans and spectators watching them work at their trailer and will be eager to answer any questions about their engine combination and how it makes them different than the guy parked next to them.
