It's all about teamwork!

Did you know that the average duration of a NASCAR pit stop is 13-15 seconds?!  4 tires are removed, 4 new tires are installed and an entire tank of gas is filled.  Many races have been won due to the efficiency and teamwork between the driver and their crew during a pit stop. 

It's hard to not relate this concept to our daily lives as we surround ourselves with our own "crew".  The museum is our race car and the handful of truly dedicated employees, who give more effort than a crew of double their size, are the ones filling the tanks and changing the tires to ensure that our "vehicle" runs as efficiently as it can.  I am very proud to be a member of this crew.

This short video is a perfect visual to see the job of the "Rear Tire Changer" in a pit crew.
