NASCAR PIT SOCKET 

The KRC-8240 NASCAR Pit Socket has become one of the leading products on pit road.

  • KRC-8240 Pit SocketLess vibration than any other socket in the industry today because of its balance and tightened mandrel specifications.

  • Used by many of the front and rear tire changers in the NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES, NASCAR NATIONWIDE SERIES, and in the NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SERIES.
  • Sockets are balanced and run out less than .002!
  • They are heat treated and have a spring included for rapid ejection of the NASCAR KRC-8208 and KRC-8208X lug nut.

These sockets work in harmony with KRC's Wheel Studs and Lug Nuts for perfect pitstops every time.
