De-icing help is on the way from Charlotte Motor Speedway

   Charlotte Motor Speedway mobilized three jet dryers to nearby Concord Regional Airport to help with drying the runway. 

   That also will help local NASCAR teams traveling to Daytona Beach, Fla., for this week's race and related activities.

   More than a dozen flights with more than 700 racing personnel are scheduled to depart in the next couple days for the season-opening NASCAR races at Daytona International Speedway, officials said.
