TMS jet dryers put to use in Arlington

Texas Motor Speedway's two jet dryer trucks were in Arlington on Saturday to assist the North Texas Super Bowl Committee in preparing neighboring parking lots for Sunday's Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium.

The modified Chevrolet pick-up trucks are equipped with a Learjet engine and are used to dry or blow debris from TMS' high-banked oval. They were used to melt and blow ice and snow from the parking lots at The Ballpark in Arlington that will be used Sunday.

The trucks were contracted by the committee months ago as a precaution in the event of inclement weather. The area has been dealing with icy conditions throughout the week.
