NASCAR pit crews carry spares for everything, including the steering wheel. A crewman for Camping World Truck Series driver Tyler Reddick sticks the spare steering wheel in a case.
The difference in operations between sponsored and unsponsored vehicles and drivers is huge. The woman and man sitting on the tool box in the foreground are with unsponsored Truck Series driver Norm Benning, as are the two crewmen below them (the only two he has). Beyond them is the pit crew and equipment for Tyler Reddick.
This gasman for Tyler Reddick could use his uniform, including protective head cover, for Halloween.

Matt Crafton (88) leads Timothy Peters (17), Erik Jones (4), and Johnny Sauter (98) down the front straightaway in the Fred’s 250 Saturday afternoon.
A crewman tapes down the side of Matt Crafton’s truck after he and another truck collided on pit road.
Christopher Bell (54) was headed toward a top five finish until NASCAR penalized him late in the race for ‘locking bumpers,’ meaning he pushed too long on another truck. In the photo you can see how close he is to Brandon Jones (33).
A NASCAR Pit Official (white suit) waves Matt Crafton’s pit crew away from working on his truck following a late race crash. The race was halted to clean up debris from the multi-truck crash, and the crew could not work on his truck while the race was stopped.
Timothy Peters (17) and Brandon Jones (33) line up side by the side for the final restart. Peters pulled out in front on the start and won the race when drivers behind them wrecked to bring out the caution flag.
Timothy Peters celebrates in Victory Lane. He also won at Talladega last fall and became the third driver in Truck Series history to win consecutive races at Talladega, joining Todd Bodine (2007, 2008) and Kyle Busch (2209, 2010).
An Army Golden Eagle parachutist lands with the American Flag in pre-race events at the CampingWorld.com 500 on Sunday.
Jamie McMurray’s son peers into his dad’s race car as McMurray gets ready to race.
Joey Logano (22) leads the inside row and Dale Earnhardt Jr. leads the outside row down the back straightaway midway through the race Sunday.
Three level seating: You could take your pick on the back of this truck. Sit on chairs in the bed, on the tool box, or on the roof. These folks were watching the back straightaway.
You walks around the RV’s in the infield and you’ll see lots of TV’s. This fellow didn’t have an RV, but he had a generator, TV, speakers, and satellite dish for watching the race, which was just a few feet over from him to his left.
A crewman dodges out of the way (left), as Tony Stewart leaves his pit. The crewman couldn’t jump too far back as a second later Austin Dillon (behind Stewart) pulled out behind the crewman.
On the first try for a green white checkered finish, Jimmie Johnson (left) and Kyle Larson got spun out into the infield, bringing out the caution.
When the green white checkered didn’t go the first time, the field reset, with Joey Logano on the outside with Jeff Gordon behind him, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the inside with Brad Keselowski behind him. This time, right after the green flag flew, there was a major pileup behind the leaders and the race was over with Logano winning by inches.
With ticker tape flying and his steering wheel in his hand, Joey Logano celebrates his win.
As the race teams and crowds left Sunday, members of a local Boy Scout Troop took down the American flag as their leaders stood at salute.
