It was my first Pit Crew Challenge and I was a big loser: I was teamed with Brad Lovell, one of six BFGoodrich brand ambassadors in the Baja Challenge. We were at an event simulating what would happen in a real-life race.
The task was to take off and put on a set of tires and perform a mock refuel of a racing car. Since I was with a pro, our official time was used as a benchmark for the rest of the competition. Let's just say that another team did the job in less than 60 seconds. Our score was 2 minutes and 15 seconds. That's due to the fact that I am a klutz. During the tire change, I put the lug nuts on backwards and then they flew off and went under the car. And forget about refueling the gas -- I couldn't even lift the can!
