Jet Dryers the only vehicles making laps at Daytona during delay
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The only vehicles allowed on the Daytona International Speedway track Sunday puttered along at about 20 mph and blew hot air, not noxious exhaust.
But not a single race car could move in the Daytona 500 until the 10 Jet Dryers -- a hybrid of truck, airplane and hot-air blower -- did their job. In the end, the large, loud vehicles that blow and boil the water off wet racetracks lost the battle, at least for this day.
