With about 20 standard toolboxes, Ricky Sanders Racing can meet the pit and garage needs of racers in most of today’s popular series.
“Of course, we can custom build to fit any application,” says Sanders, who sells the product through pitboxes.com.
All the pitboxes are constructed of aluminum with stainless hardware and are available in a variety of colors. The key feature for improved mobility is the set of pneumatic tires.
“We can build pretty much anything that needs to be mobile,” says Sanders, who started the company when his race team was forced to park the transporter far from the track and the casters wouldn’t work over the terrain. So he modified the toolbox with large pneumatic tires and added steering.
One of the standard boxes is equipped with a grille for pit-side entertaining. Others are designed to support a generator or tire racks in addition to providing seating for a crew chief. A variety of sizes with different drawer layouts is also available to serve pit crews, engine builders, and support staff.
The drawers ride on roller bearings, and storage compartments are available for often-used products like spray cans or nitrogen bottles. The tops of the boxes are often protected with a spray-on liner, and boxes can be modified to suit specific needs, such as adding a vise or engine stand.
For custom boxes, Sanders has integrated TV and sound systems, or arranges the shelving to meet specific display needs. Industries outside of racing, such as the military, medical and construction have also ordered theses custom toolboxes.
