Things at the race track tend to get chaotic. When it gets out of hand, this chaos can lead to thousands of dollars worth of lost tools and damaged equipment, which is why proper storage is essential. Beyond that, having everything organizing in one location, especially if it’s mobile, makes life in the shop and in the pits exponentially easier.
Tool and equipment storage needs to be compact, mobile, and all-inclusive. And no one understands this better than the crew at Irvan-Smith Inc. Irvan-Smith has been servicing the racing industry for 30 years. Its pit carts and pit wagons can be found at nearly any race across the country. It offers a wide array of standard and custom pit wagons, crash carts, fuel carts, tire dollies, and just any other cart needed to transport equipment over the course of a race weekend. Beyond the carts and wagons, Irvan-Smith also has everything needed to fill them.
When it comes to pit carts and wagons, your specific needs are going to dictate what cart or wagon will work best for you. The staff at Irvan-Smith are experts at custom tailoring a box to your needs, or getting you the standard wagon if that will work best for your budget and what you’re doing. From a small mobile toolbox, to a custom Cup-style pit box, Irvan-Smith can build a box or boxes to fit all of your pit needs.
Recently, Circle Track ordered a new pit wagon from Irvan-Smith. During the time it was being built, we thought it might be a good idea to show you just what goes into the centerpiece of your pit equipment. The following pages contain a brief look at how one of Irvan-Smith’s pit wagons start as raw tubing, and become a useful means of tool, parts, and equipment storage. Keep an eye out in future editorial for our new Irvan-Smith pit wagon whenever we work in the shop or head to the track.
