Shopping for Racing Parts Online?

By Motorsports Student No comments »

Now that it’s the off-season for many of us, you might be thinking about shopping online for your racing parts needs instead of making trips to your local speed shop. You can save a lot of money and effort by ordering online now that you have time to price shop and wait for the order to arrive.

As we all know, most speed shops have online stores. But have you thought about purchasing racing parts from some of the mainstream sites? Sites like and Ebay are coming into their own as a racing parts shopping destination. And the best part about it is price competition – every store wants to have the lowest price, so the sites push the prices down and down. It’s great for the racer!!

You can also order harder to find parts that might not be in your local speed shop or may cost a pretty penny to ship normally. With competition so steep online, you’ll find shipping to be next to nothing on items like seats and even Hoosier tires!

Here are some of the many things you can find on Amazon or Ebay:

Brad Penn Racing Oil – this is one of the best racing oils you can buy, but it’s hard to find in many areas of the country. You can find it on Amazon, though, for under retail, even with shipping!

Apparel and safety equipment – You can find lots of racing apparel on Ebay in a variety of stores. That includes Hoosier, Weld, and Simpson gear in addition to many other brands.

Hoosier Tires – one tire ships for $9.95 in this Amazon store, and the most you’ll pay for shipping for multiple tire orders is $19..95 total!

Another thing to keep in mind when shopping online is the growing number of stores that offer cash back through sites like Ebates. For example, you can earn 4.0% cash back on Amazon purchases through the shopping site, and you can earn a $10 gift card just for making your first Ebates purchase over $25.

Happy shopping, and remember to watch out for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals as more and more race shops are offering specials around this popular shopping holiday. Start getting prepared for 2013 at reduced prices – you won’t regret it!
