The number of pit stops is dependent upon the length of the race. The average NASCAR driver will need a pitstop every 60 miles.
There is no definitive number of pit stops in a Nascar race. This number varies due to the different size race tracks and the gas mileage for that certain race. Also if there is a green-white-checkered finish, teams can come in to the pits once again in the final laps for fresh tires.
3 pit stops average
The gas can that is used by NASCAR pit stop crews is holding 10 to 12 gallons of gas. Usually on a full fill, two gas cans are used. The pit crew tries to have only what gas is needed for a particular stop in the can because if the tank overfills it will cause a fuel spill which will penalize the driver.
On average NASCAR pit crews can execute a pit stop in about 13-14 seconds.

Safety for both the crews and drivers in the pit.
if you mean the thing they pull off in pit stops. its called a take off and its a thin piece of clear plastic that you pull of when the window gets dirty
This was the guy that held a small can to catch the overflow of gas that spilled into a special tube when the gas man filled the gas tank on a race car. In 2011, Nascar no longer required the use of the catch can man. They now use self-venting gas cans.
