Air Titan has 'cost issue,' but available to every track

   NASCAR Chairman Brian France said Saturday that NASCAR’s new Air Titan track drying system is available to every track but admitted there is a “cost issue” involved that has made it difficult for track owners to incorporate its use.

  France said without the Air Titan system at Talladega, Ala., earlier this month, neither the Nationwide or Cup races would have been completed on their scheduled days.

  My hope is that we will get the cost down, number one, and that every track in risk of having rain will be using the system,” France said. “It just takes the industry a little time to realize that it really works, all of us to get together and implement it.”
   The Air Titan uses compressed air to blow water off the track surface, shortening the time needed to dry the track and return it to raceable conditions.

  1. Brian France said "it just takes the industry a little time to realize....". If that isn't the pot calling the kettle black. Brian France is the slowest person to realize what the industry needs. France needs to realize that if this Titan system is good for the sport and will help Nascar fans see a complete race instead of a partial race then Nascar should not charge the tracks to use it. Do it for the fans Brian, not to put every dime you can in your pocket. I bet France didn't charge Talladega for its use. He wanted to show everyone how smart HE was by coming up with the idea. Now he thinks he should get paid for his idea. France once again proving why he is one of the most disliked people in Nascar.
