Weigh it down using heavy objects like your tool box, spare tire, sand bags, lead filled pots. Get some rope or adjustable tie downs. RM

when i travel and get on asphalt pits, i used my fuel jug. I keep it in the shade all the time anyway and on the right side it will stay in the shade there all day. Hook one tie down to the jug handle other to frame of canopy.

Whatever you do, don't leave your stuff unattended on Thursday nights--I have lost about $1500 worth of tools and fuel jugs on 2 separate occasions.
On Sundays during the Summit Series, you could leave cash sitting out in the open, but the scumbags that show up on Thursdays will take anything not bolted down. We have tried several times to get the track to keep spectator vehicles out of the pit area, but it hasn't happened yet.
I carry a cable lock like for a bike, and loop it thru all the handles of my box and jugs and then around a lamp post or.......
