Pit Marshals

Since many SCCA races include practice and qualifying sessions before the races, many drivers spend time in the Pits making adjustments to the cars. The Pits can become a busy place with cars and people on the move. Pit Marshals direct traffic, ensure the safety of the driver and crew, and check that the car is ready to return to the track before it leaves the Pit Lane. Sometimes Pit Marshals put out small fires, make sure that no one crawls under a car without a jack stand, and check on a reported oil or coolant leak. Pit Marshals are also responsible for directing cars into the paddock and back onto the track in a safe manner.
