Many drivers and teams have good luck charms or maybe a kind of ritual before the race. Do you and if so , what are they? Ours is we find a penny in the pits and put it under the seat cover of the race car before the hot laps begin.

Have to wear an over-the-calf socks or it bugs the heck out of all night and I put my left glove on first then my right, if I do it opposite then I have that feeling that I didn't do something right or forgot something.

The best good luck charm is being prepared with both car and mind before you strap in. The rest is just to humor my old man.

We got a new bert tranny last year and had to get a new driveshaft so I decided after painting it white I would make a candy cane out of it.We had better luck. Now both cars and all of our spare driveshafts are candy caned.
