You don't. You leave it to the racers. They put their wheels in and they're responsible for knowing where the wheels are to get them out.

It's simply impossible for you to keep track of a truck full of wheels, so don't even bother. Changing a wheel out is not going to be a speedy thing for anyone.

The single most important thing you can do (in my opinion), is gradually accelerate once they get going so they can grab your draft, then take it up to speed. Watch them carefully and if they start gapping off, slow accordingly. Slow a bit on the uphills, faster on the downhills. Take them as far up to the rear of the group as safe to do so, then move over to let them come by and rejoin.
