Epic 1 Design pit board coming soon

During the recent Gold Cup at Tacoma Raceway Epic 1 Designs’ pit board caught a lot of attention. The surface has a special texture, side cut-outs allow for tools to sit in, and the size looks perfect for most pit bags. There is also a nice touch to the lower logo that actually has magnetic properties. The release date and price have yet to be confirmed.
