The pit stops need to be well-practiced and well-executed. While it can be very difficult to win a race in the pits, between lost time on the track and penalties for any infractions, it is often all too easy to lose a race there.

Here, the pit crew for the #31 Hankook Tire / El Diablo M3 fuels with 5-gallon jugs in the background as the gravity-fed fuel rig of their neighbors (#90 BimmerWorld / Red Line Oil E92 M3) sits idle. The #31 car placed first in the E0 class (which doesn't allow the gravity-fueling rigs), and fourth overall. The stopwatch on the handle for the gravity rig is used to calibrate how much fuel to transfer to the car, in order to optimize the time spent in the pits.
