I was pondering this one on the way home from my last race, and enjoy hearing good stories. So..... we know what keeps drivers coming back. They get to go race. For crew though, it has to come from somewhere else. I know that I love the competition and the challenge. When some yahoo brings my car (well the owners car, but don't we all consider it our car in some way?) back broken, and I get to help put him back on the course, its a win for me. At the start of a race, I'm just as nervous and wound up as the driver. Time spent working with great people, in the shop. Amazing roadtrips. Good food. It just seems like lunacy, the amount of time we spend working on other peoples' stuff, but you couldn't pry me away from, it with a crowbar. What keeps the diehard crew dogs in it? Lets hear some stories from crew folks.
