The first quarter of the season is over! Teams had nine races to see where they stack up. That goes for pit crews as well. So far this season we have seen some new crews step up and it’s time they get some credit. Take a look below at our list of top performing pit crews from the 1st quarter.

#1…..The #4 crew of Kevin Harvick
We talked about this crew at the half way point of the 1st quarter and they have continued to show their dominance as the best team on pit road so far. Even though the #4 hasn’t won yet, its coming, and when they do you can count on the pit crew having a major part in it!

#2…..The #42 of Kyle Larson
This crew made a strong push for the #1 spot but in our minds but fell a tad short. This team is young and only getting better. If we were to make an early pick #1 for 2nd quarter, it would be them.

#3….The #3 crew of Austin Dillon
At the beginning of the year no one knew what this team would do. They were put together late last year and have flourished into a top 5 pit crew so far. Never mind that the #3 doesn’t run up front every week, they still deserve the credit of a top crew.

#4….The #78 of Martin Truex Jr.
So far the #78 has been running up front every week and his pit crew has been keeping him there. This a big improvement from mid season last year and this group deserves a lot of credit. They’re gaining or maintaining each week and they could be an early candidate for 2nd quarter P1 as well.

#5….The #18 of Kyle Busch and #41 of Kurt Busch
We usually take a stance and don’t sissy out into a tie….but this was to close to call and their brothers. Both the #18 and #41 have pitted well this year and they are worthy of a top 5 ranking. Not quite having the consistency of the top 4 but not far off. Look for a strong 2nd quarter from both of these crews.

So that’s it….congrats to the pit crews on the list and hopefully everyone enjoyed the rankings. Take a chance to vote in our poll below and see what everyone else thinks about our picks!
