Armadillo Racing working with Pacific Raceways will begin our second season supporting the drag racing community from the ProShop located behind the burnout grandstands, sharing the space with the track shirt and souvenir shop. Many racers already visited us during the decidedly shortened season last year.
On the road racing side, Armadillo Racing has been servicing nearly all the event for over 35 years from our 28 ft. trailer/showroom.
Our history includes serving the drags at Bremerton Raceway for nearly 15 years as well as road racing events all over the Pacific NW and we are the official safety equipment supplier to the ProFormance Racing School. On the personal side, I’m currently serving as the President of the Society of Vintage Racing Enthusiasts (SOVREN), the club that conducts 3 vintage sports car races each year at Pacific Raceways.
At the ProShop we stock safety equipment racers need to stay safe and legal including jackets, pants, helmets, HANS devices and gloves. Additionally, we stock current SFI seat belts, dial-in marker, tire gauges, lubricants, RPM chips, fuel jugs, Holley jets and various other must have items.
For the road racing events, we have a complete trackside store to include all the safety equipment featuring suits from OMP and helmets from Bell, Pyrotect, Arai, Roux and HJC. We carry a huge inventory of AN hoses and fittings, nuts, bolts and fasteners, pit equipment, racers tape, dzus fasteners, gauges, pyrometers, mirrors, Red Line and Valvoline oil, 6 different types of brake fluid, cool shirt systems, books, selected brake pads and so much more. As a service to the NW Racing community, we are an authorized HANS recertifier as well.
Our goal is to have what you need to keep you and your car going on race weekends. Please visit our website at www.armdilloracing.com or call us toll free USA and Canada 888-211-9129. In future issues of the Track Insider we’ll use this column to help you stay current on products, specifications and rules so you quickly and easily pass tech inspection and have the most fun racing as you can.Tags: Armadillo Racing, The Place to Race
