Pit row became pit road,when

A friend and I were watching the race yesterday and he asked when, what year or where, the term "pit row" became "pit road" and if they are now interghangeable terms?
Thank you

I dunno but is Pit Row where they park and Pit Road the way they get to pit row?

Jerry, I believe you will find that "Pit Row" is an older term, still in use. The area where the European Grand Prix cars pitted was commonly called "Pit Row."

This is merely a SWAG but I would say that, in the context of today's NA$CAR, "Pit Row" would apply to the like of pits along the pit wall, which separates the pits from the infield. "Pit Road" is the avenue the drivers use to get to their respective pits. I believe, in general, the two terms are used interchangeably, or merely condensed to "Pits."

I believe that's correct, that pit row is the actual pit stalls and pit road of course is the road alongside where the speed limit occurs. Did a little google searching and that's what I'm coming up with. (old thread I know, but I'm scanning through stuff after joining recently)
