 Any particular reason why someone was underneath. My guess is something broken they where inspecting.

Every team has different pit procedures.  Most of them based on their history with that particular race car, like a common part failure or common bolts that come loose every time that they make a point to inspect at every pit stop.  Or they could have got a call on the radio that went something like "Sounds like a midget  with a sledge hammer on the back of the truck".  Who knows.  Plenty of valid reasons to be under the vehicle during a pit stop.  The mint is always a cold cold mistress of a race.  I heard this year was no different.  A few years ago we wore a hole into a 1/4" thick chromoly skid plate on the rear end.

They where changing out the drive shaft. Had a rock ding in it so it was vibrating really bad.
