Any place to pick up knee pucks locally?

I'm not sure that the stealerships will carry 'em and I'm also not sure if I even need them or not for a first time out on the track. Something tells me they are a requirement though like gloves or something, but that is just my intuition speaking.

Pucks are not a safety requirement to my knowledge, however, it is cheaper to buy pucks than it is to repair worn holes through leather knees. Trust me, I wore THROUGH my right puck, through the velcro... and threw my pocket book.

if your going to spend $40 on a set of pucks, just go to newenough. as for locally, if you can't find them anywhere, you could probably hit up drucker for some track side

I got some old ones that aren't too bad. You can take those with the ramp and tie downs.

You won't NEED them for your first time out in all likelyhood. But when you get addicted and start leaning more, you definately will.

I went to Nielsen's a couple years ago to get a set. They looked at me like I had a dick drawn on my forehead. Never even heard of them.

anohter option might be to check places like trouphy leathers and some of your leather shops or call 4&6 or chicago performance.
