Joe Gibbs Racing announced a partnership with New Balance Athletic Shoe
Inc. to supply the crews for each of their three NASCAR Sprint Cup
Series teams and two NASCAR Nationwide Series teams with a specialized
shoe designed specifically to improve the performance of pit crew
members as they go over the wall.
“Its no secret that our pit stops can be the difference between
winning and losing a race,” said Joe Gibbs, owner of Joe Gibbs Racing.
“The New Balance pit crew shoes provide our guys with the confidence to
perform at their highest levels every time they go over that wall.”
“New Balance's dedication to providing high-quality footwear solutions
that ensure the best fit and performance possible is brought to life
with our first-ever pit crew shoe and we are thrilled to debut with Joe
Gibbs Racing,” says Jim Tompkins, President & COO at New Balance.
In addition to supplying specifically designed shoes to the pit crews
for each team, New Balance will provide training shoes for their
workout use as well as athletic footwear to JGRs entire travel team,
providing support and comfort as they spend long days on their feet
preparing the car for race day.
