At FEMCA last year they allowed 2 pit men for every car, so Rico and i were pitting for Jordan in the A. Halfway through the race, Jordan had moved up to 9th from 13th, and as he pulled up to our spot...

Rico: "oh shit." (looks down at an empty gun)

So i reach down, grab the car, and do my best slow mo of bringing the car up to fuel.

Rico manages to get the gun filled, and off goes the car.

Rico: "you think he noticed?"

Me: "if he did, i'm saying its all your fault!"

It never gets old that one I get it every time I get a newby filling for me, they take so long to fill it Chris B on sunday was grilling his pitman, Karl B I think? "was that a full tank?" KB "yes" chris "are you sure" KB "yes" I said to Chris who was driving next to me,"was he too fast" yes Chris said...I bet he didn't try and stretch that tank too long.

My fueler Nick was out marshalling cause we were low on numbers, When I looked to his marshalling spot the lap before I was comming in he wasn't there I drove the whole next lap (badly) searching all the marshall spots for him, finally found him and he was waving the fuel bottle at me phew!

This one actually happened last month.
One of my racers had his wife at the race (Great girl with lots of interest in the hobby.) She had to help pit because the 2 of us were running in the same main. The other guy came in for fuel and she couldn't get the cap open so my pitman helped her with it. After the buggy was back on the track, she looked at my pitman and said "I don't know what I pulled on, but something came off" That buggy went like a "bat out of hell". It was really lean because she had pulled the pressure line off the tank lid.
Never a dull moment when Maria is at the races.

Around 3 years ago got a good mate of mine to pit for me. Did the 3 quals for the day no worrys. Told my mate my starting position for the final go out do the warmup drive up to him he fills it up and holds it up for me the count down starts it gets down to 3sec release the cars comes over the pa. At this point every other pit man remembers witch way the track goes apart from mine. I asked him after the race why did ya put me down backwards? He looked at me blankly. Sumtimes ya just have to laugh.

This happened while running around town on the way to the track and is a running joke ever since. My teammate is driving down a side road in Indy before heading out to JCP for practice. Allergies or a cold had been messing with him all weekend when he sneezes pretty hard and yells "ARGGHHH! MY GROIN!!!" He cant gas or brake or anything while grabbing his junk and asks me to grab the wheel. I can't because I'm in the middle of a side splitting laughing fit. I can't even breathe. He starts laughing too while still in pain. So glad it was an empty side rd and not the highway we were on later. Just random stuff like that kills me.
