The first Pit Boss jack was created out of necessity when company founder John Bickford sought a better pit stop jack for his stepson Jeff Gordon and his Hendrick Motorsports team. Jeff and the Rainbow Warriors claimed the 1995 NASCAR Winston Cup Championship with the assistance of the Pit Boss "one-pump" aluminum race jack. Several years later the brand expanded to include the Shop Boss, a beautifully crafted aluminum garage jack manufactured to the same tight tolerances as our race jacks. The Shop Boss can be seen throughout the NASCAR garage area.
