The Iron Neck 
 
If you’re out there on the track you already know your neck can take a beating and the higher the speeds, the higher the g-forces. One of the most unique pieces of equipment we work with is The Iron Neck. Used to help for many disciplines, having a strong neck as a driver helps prevent fatigue, whiplash and even concussion. See The Iron Neck in action in the video below, at http://www.iron-neck.com  and see it live at PitFit Training!
