I'm looking for some stackable, portable shelves for giving me more room in my pit space when I travel to races. I've noticed several guys using white wire shelves that have fold up legs but I can't find them anywhere. Any tips?

You can get those in the kitchen dept at Walmart. I think they are for baking trays.

Never thought I'd say this, but Larry (Lfisminiz) has a nice rack LOL.

The ones chad-Nelson and yasuji had at the Tekin race looked just like that but the legs folded under the shelf for compact storage. That's a must for me.

Anyone have a link or better description of the one Larry has? I stopped by Home Depot today and couldn't find anything.

Here is the one Larry had at the NJ PN Regional. Not the one I was thinking of. Matt Ward's custom built unit is to the right. I'm sure Larry will chime in when MD race this weekend is over.

That shelf rack is called a "Metro" if you google it I'm sure you will find them.

Wow - that's a lot of stuff!

But guys, I very specifically need help finding stackable shelves that collapse for travel. I can't carry a freakin' bookshelf on a plane. :)

The ones Grant and Chad were using looked ideal - I just can't find them anywhere. Anyone know the brand name? Are the cabinet shelves, baking racks, etc? Thanks!

I use ones like this in my other hobby. There are several sizes available and most places like Target, Wall-e-mart, Kohls, etc... have something similar available.

the ones like larry and i use are big but they break down very easily into a small foot print. the baking rakes are smaller and easier to breakdown though if you can find them.

Why thanks...i guess??;):p:)

Seriously, for local races, where its a big event, the rack i use is great because pit space is limited. Since you want it for traveling, i would go for the foldable type.
