During the summer of 2012, the folks at Richard Petty Driving Experience were searching for a backup safety latch option in case anyone forgot to reinstall hood pins for their stock cars. They found the solution by installing one QL-25-S mini Quik-Latch on the hood of each of their stock cars so that the hood can stay put long enough to have the car get called back into the pits so that the hood pins can be reinstalled. Below is a video of the first of the Richard Petty Driving Experience cars getting the Quik-Latch mini installed at the Texas Motor Speedway in August 2012. The people from Richard Petty Driving Experience were also kind enough to drive their cars on the track. It was a complete blast, and a definite must do for any racing enthusiast!
