Pit Crew Carnival

The Red Bull Racing pit crew hosted a "team-lunch-turned-carnival" for the entire shop (that's 150+ hungry people!) today at the “5 On 5 Off” pit crew school. There were guys grilling burgers and dogs, guys volunteering themselves in the dunk tank, guys racing each other through an obstacle course, and guys beating on each other with overgrown boxing gloves in a blow up rink (boys will be boys…but we did catch some girls jumping in on the action!). The jury is still out on whether the highlight of the carnival was seeing people race to the front of the line to try to dunk Competition Director Elton Sawyer or the actual moment he went down in the dunk tank. AJ was first in line (see pic) for that one – but wasn’t the one to get the ultimate dunk. A big thanks to the pit crew and their lovely wives that helped out!

I think that was a nice thing to do. the team should motivate each other and have a good time. It takes a lot of people to put a good car on the track, the shop guys , the driver, crew chief and the pit crew and the owner. I hope the team had a great time.
