Sing show tunes.

Line-up backwards on the grid, then drive away when a marshal reaches for my car (an E thing).

Yell out "less than five" at random intervals.

spin around three times before picking a spot on the drivers stand.

say something random and stupid to the driver on each side of me before every race. IE: " I have a cat named molly."

Do at least 1 stupid thing during the warm up before the race. Doughnuts, run over the marshals foot (slowly), drive backwards down pit lane (if empty), hack a backmarker and say "there, needed that out of my system."

Bring an extra Traxxas radio up the stand with you. Throw it on the track, and point to the nearest person without a radio in there hands.

have fun, stress less.
I especially like the radio bit. I have some of those radios that are just sitting there. hummmmm

I try to just think of every trip to the drivers stand as a practice session. Usually works good in quals cause I make sure I don't start with half the field. Little tougher in the mains though, kinda forced right into the mix.

2 wheel stock right?




I drive best when I don't care about winning as much. So I try to keep that mindset on the stand to relax.
