The Driver Suit Blog-Collecting Race Car Waste?

By David G. Firestone

In racing, like any other sporting event, when the fans and athletes leave, there is a lot of waste left. However, unlike most other sports, the debris left has some collector value. There are a number of things, car part, sheet metal, and even rubber that collectors want.

While every other part is custom made, and proprietary, lug nuts are pretty standard, and discarded after the race by teams. Collectors love these. These examples came after a Pocono race weekend from 2013. These all show varying amounts of wear.

When it comes to debris, examples of items include chassis pieces, tape, and claig, or rubber from tires. All are exampled here.

That was a short one, so now we move on to…
