NASCAR has introduced the Air Titan track drying system that will debut during Speedweeks at Daytona International Speedway.
This innovative technology, steeped in science and created by the NASCAR R&D Center, will reduce track drying time, improve the racing product and enhance the fan experience—starting this week and including The Sprint Unlimited on Saturday night at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
Using compressed air, the Air Titan efficiently and reliably pushes water off of the racing surface and onto the apron, where vacuum trucks will remove the remainder of the moisture.
Jet dryers will follow each Air Titan, drying any excess water that remains on the racing surface.
Additionally, Elgin Sweeper Company, Sullair and Ring Power CAT also provided equipment during the testing, and will be part of the track-drying process at Daytona during Speedweeks.
