Joe Gibbs Racing Used Parts Store Gives Second Life to Racecar Parts HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (May 20, 2011) – Joe Gibbs Racing recently reopened its used parts store, which sells parts from all of their NASCAR racecars. The store sells motor parts, chassis, pit equipment, seats and radios both new and used. Joe Gibbs Racing Used Parts Store is located at 13201 W. Reese Blvd., Huntersville, N.C. The majority of the products in the store are from cars that have raced or that the pit crew used. Often parts are replaced on the racecars before they wear out to avoid the risk of them breaking during a race. In addition to used parts, the store sells new parts that have become obsolete as the teams switch to redesigned parts. The used parts store provides smaller race teams with the parts that they need at more affordable prices than new parts. NASCAR fans also shop at the store in order to take home a piece of racing related to their favorite driver. For example, fans can purchase a window net that was used on one of the racecars. Currently, the store is selling all of the old Nationwide Series body styles. There are over seven different chassis available to be purchased. These can be used to race in the ARCA Series or for personal use. For more information about the store contact Robbie Etters, manager of Joe Gibbs Racing Used Parts Store, at 704-944-5484 or retters@joegibbsracing.com.
