At the Track: Five Essential Products for Between Runs

02/01/2024

After working on your race car through the winter season, it’s time to get ready for events at the track. You start prepping your trailer, tools, and pack all the things that you’ll need to work on your car in between your runs. In your shop, you might have all the necessities, but trackside, it’s about portability and what can fit either in your car or with your car in the trailer.

Here, we have a guide to five essential Race Ramps products that will make your life easier during your time at the track.

Race Ramps Track Jax

Track-Jax

Aerodynamics are great for your car when on the track, but it’s a pain when it’s so low that even a standard jack cannot fit underneath it. For the times you need to look underneath your car, our Track-Jax is a simple drive-up option that gives your car a 3" lift – enough to place a hydraulic jack underneath.

Race Ramps 10 inch Wheel Cribs

Wheel Cribs

If the wheels don’t need to come off your car – then jacking up your race car to sit on our Wheel Cribs is more dependable and stable than jack stands. Be sure to sweep away any gravel to give the Wheel Cribs a clean, flat surface to rest on. As a 100% solid product, you can safely work underneath your race car at heights ranging from 8” up to 14”.

Drive-up Service Ramps

Another option for working underneath your race car in the pits is to use our drive-up service ramps, which work for both front and rear end work. Using our Yardstick Test to determine the angle of approach of your race car, our low-angle drive-up ramps take less than minute to get your car situated on. When trackside turnaround time is of the essence, a drive-up ramp is likely to be your fastest method to set your car up for servicing.

Racer Mat

You can’t look underneath your car without getting on the ground. While some trackside pits have clean grounds, other pits have gravel and asphalt that’s weathered the elements. To keep clean and to work in comfort, our Racer Mat is a great option when working on the ground. It’s a foldable 2’ x 6’ closed-cell foam mat that easily transports in the back or trunk of a car. For enclosed trailers, it tucks nicely against the sidewall.

Wheel Chocks

Whether you’re using our Wheel Cribs or service ramps, chocking the tires is always recommended when two wheels are still on the ground. Our all-rubber wheel chocks are designed for grip and should be with you trackside and in the shop. For cars with wider tires, check out our Racer Chock.
