What is the status of my order?
We will email tracking information to you as soon your order is shipped out. We will contact you if your order has an issue or if an item may arrive outside of the delivery window you selected on checkout.
Please keep an eye on your email inbox (and spam folder!)
for any messages from us.
You may also check the status of your orders by logging in
to your account. If you opted to checkout as 'guest', you can register for an account using the same email address you used for you order. This will allow you to login and see your account information and order status.

Orders shipped to PO Boxes and APO/FPO addresses still ship free! However, they may not arrive within stated the delivery window.

Is overnight delivery available?

before placing the order to ensure the items are available for immediate shipping. We will get back to you asap!
How long will shipping take?
Orders may ship from several locations across the country or from a single location. Other orders may have to be shipped from different warehouses to us to be repackaged into a single shipment. As such, our order fulfillment system is not based off of a single shipping method, but instead allows you to select the time frame you need the order to arrive within. This allows us to guarantee shipment arrival dates from anywhere in the US.
Will free shipping really take 7-10 days?
Many orders with free shipping will arrive earlier than 7-10 days, but we can't guarantee it. If you need an item more quickly please choose an expedited shipping option. We will contact you whenever there might be an issue with your order arriving within the delivery window selected on checkout.
What forms of payment do you accept?
At this time, we process all major credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover Card. We can accept payment by Paypal as well, but you will need to Contact us
to be sent a Paypal invoice as it is not an option in our checkout process.
Do you take orders over the phone?
RacingDirect.com uses a 3rd party account to process credit cards. In the interest of security, none of your actual payment information is stored on our site. Because we do not process payments directly, we are unable to accept orders over the phone.
