It’s summer time and the rising temperature just makes it that much hotter in a race car, where temps can exceed 120 degrees. Here at Winding Road, we always advise drivers to add a driver cooling system to their car. Keeping your core body temperature at a safe level helps reduce hydration and fatigue, leading to improved performance throughout your race.

Find driver cooling systems online at, or in our retail stores in Austin, Southern California, Northern California at Thunderhill Raceway and in Bowling Green, KY at NCM Motorsports Park.
