NASCAR Unveils Air Titan 2.0
NASCAR unveiled a new version of the Air Titan track-drying system.
The Air Titan 2.0 is more compact than its predecessor, and it is more environmentally friendly.
With its reduced size, the new unit can be put in the back of a Toyota Tundra. Its power supply is also smaller, which means that more units can be deployed at larger tracks, while smaller tracks can use fewer units, making track-drying more efficient.
The new Air Titan had triple the blade capacity of the old unit, which should reduce track-drying time by about 80 percent.
The new Air Titan will use 80% less fuel and emit 80% less carbon dioxide.
Brian France, NASCAR chairman and CEO, said:
Developed by our engineers at the NASCAR R&D Center, Air Titan 2.0 will help us more quickly return to racing, which serves our most important mission – the enjoyment of our fans. It’s faster, more agile and eco-friendly. The new Air Titan creates the ultimate win-win-win for our sport, our fans and our environment.
