Copy of RACE SUIT BAG NO.3
Serial no.3 utilizes an upcycled Sparco flameproof race suit, race-worn by a pit crew member of the #31 Jeff Burton Cheerios Chevy Racing Team (RCR Richard Childress Racing) during the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Season. What you see is the end result of what started out as a historic piece of NASCAR, folded away in a closet since 2013, retired and destined to live out the rest of its days in the dark. Luckily we were able to take it in and re-engineer a new purpose, giving it a new lease on life.
SERIES: NASCAR SPRINT CUP
TEAM: #31 JEFF BURTON CHEERIOS CHEVY RACING

The outside of the suit utilized the chest & back for the front and back of the bag, and the sides & bottom utilized the legs of the suit. The zipper is still fully functional. Peek through the armpit holes and you’ll have 2 full size pockets.
The shoulder straps of the bag utilized the additional material from the interior pants and are anchored by the shoulder pulls from the Cheerios suit.
The interior of the suit used a pair of pants race-worn by a NASCAR Official. The pant pockets are functional for additional storage.

We’d love to make this one available on the shop but we have a special plan first. We’ll be sending the suit around to collect as many autographs from our heroes as we can and it’ll be up for auction at a later date with all proceeds benefitting our Parc Fermé Foundation.
The first signature collected that you can see is by the legendary founder of RWB. Thank you for the support Nakai San!

SUPPORTING THE PARC FERMÉ FOUNDATION
A portion from each item sold goes directly towards our Non-profit - the 'Parc Fermé Foundation' - where we're on a mission of sending young race fans on race experiences, with the focus being on young fans who are battling difficult challenges that life has thrown their way, or who just wouldn’t have the means to make it to the race if not for a foundation like us stepping in.
It’s by the Motorsports community for the Motorsports community, for those that are young and call the community their home, but due to their circumstances they’ve very often been on the outside looking in.
