A Pit Crew By Any Other Name (would still change four tires and get a full load of fuel in 14 seconds!)Posted by in General
So am I the only one who has noticed that there is a fairly “new” trend in naming the pit crews? I like it. I think it gives the pit crew’s personality! The first moniker for a pit crew i heard was for Matt Kenseth’s KILLER BEES. Fitting. They usually are (were) wearing yellow and black. Bees are fast and sting and I tend to avoid them since I am afraid of them. Then just this year Biffle and 3M held a contest to name his pit crew. They came up with The Pit Bulls. Another fitting one…but I think it would also work for any of Red Bull driver’s crews…
My favorite however, has to be one I just learned about today…and that is the Home Depot team. They apparently are marketing themselves as Logano’s Paisanos. I don’t know why but I LOVE IT. They even have themselves an AWESOME shirt (click on shirt to go to ordering site it Joegibbsracing.com):
I mean what’s not to love? The name even rhymes. Personally I think the shirt is freaking awesome!!!
However I think Tony’s pit crew needs a name- mostly because I am TIRED of typing TEAM Office Depot/Old Spice over and over. It’s tiring frankly and I don’t like slashes. I can NOT think of a good name for them to save my life. NOR can I think of a good for any team…(I think Kyle’s team needs a name too). I kinda came up with a name for Ryan’s pit crew…but it’s kinda lame. So …any ideas people? I know you are a creative bunch…give it to me.
(By the way- my name for Ryan’s pit crew? Newman’s Soldiers? I told you it was kinda lame.)
