Ingersoll Rand’s (NYSE: IR), mobile app, Thunder Gun Pit Crew Titans, is now available in the Windows Store, giving race fans with a Windows 8 device a taste of pit row.

Named for the Ingersoll Rand Thunder Gun, an impact wrench used by the top NASCAR pit crews to remove and tighten tire lug nuts, the game puts players in control of an eight-person pit crew to change tires, operate the jack, refuel the car and clean the grill. Times are recorded to determine the fastest pit stops.

“Windows 8 users can now experience the thrill of the pits with this app from Ingersoll Rand,” said John Richards, senior director of Windows App Marking for Microsoft Corp. “This is such a fun, interactive way for our Windows 8 community to utilize the new touch technology and to connect with Ingersoll Rand.”

The game features paint schemes from the Ingersoll Rand family of brands – Club Car golf cars, Ingersoll Rand air tools and compressors, Schlage locks, Thermo King transport refrigeration and Trane heating and air conditioning.

“We are excited to be able to offer the app to Windows 8 users now,” said Chad Melton, digital media manager for Ingersoll Rand. “We hope that Windows 8 users enjoy the fast-paced action of NASCAR at their fingertips.”

Thunder Gun Pit Crew Titans is also available through iTunes and Google Play. Join the conversation on the Thunder Gun Pit Crew Titans  Facebook and  Twitter pages. More information on the game can be found at www.thundergunpitcrewtitans.com.
