Halton's Race TeamThe kick-off reception for this event always features a tire change competition to allow the racing teams to show off their pit stop skills.  The Pit Crew team for Halton Racing’s number 15 car took 3rd place in this competition last night with a time of 20.4 seconds.  The team has to race to the car, lift the front end, remove the retaining nut and tire and put a new tire on ensuring the retaining nut is properly fastened and then getting the whole team back across the finish line with the original tire and all tools.  This finish in the top 3 allows the Halton Racing team to take its pick of prime locations to set up our team tent for the race on Saturday.  The Pit Team consists of Jimmy Sandusky crew chief, Faith Huffman tire handler and Andy Faller wrench man.  Drivers for the team are Chris Gentry and Jeff Hilbert.  Lap counter is Cathy Wisdom and official photographer for the team is Tonda Witt.
