Pittalks.com would like to welcome Joe Piette as a contributing member to our site. Joe is in his 29th year of Cup racing. He starting in 1989 working for Dave Marcis, one of the true independent driver/owners of our sport. Since Dave only had 7 full time employees back then, everyone on the team was required to do a little bit of everything on the cars.
“That was the best on-the-job-training you could ever ask for” says Piette.
Fast forward to today, Piette is a pit coach at Stewart-Haas racing, an organization that he has been with since its inception in 2009. In between Marcis and SHR, Joe has worked for Stavola Brothers Racing, Petty Enterprises, MB2 Motorsports and Team Penske. He spent 20 years actively changing tires so his knowledge of pit road is not in question. As Joe get’s rolling with us, there will be opportunities for you to ask him questions which he is looking forward to because trust me folks…Piette loves to talk about racing!
Please help us welcome Joe to the Pittalks.com family. Enjoy!
