Mat It!
Here's an economical way to keep your trailer floor clean and stay off the hot asphalt or the dirt in the pit stalls at the track. Find a commercial carpet company and ask for its old floor runners. Most companies will give you their old or faded ones for free. Cut them down to 4 feet long so you can throw them under your car. It makes it easy to slide under so you aren't directly on the dirt or asphalt. When you're not at the track, put them under your car so oil and other fluids don't leak on the trailer floor.
