As summer heats up, let us help you keep cool.
Based in Charlotte, right next to Charlotte Motor Speedway, we always look forward to the excitement that surrounds each race. After all, there are always products from our team helping the NASCAR teams perform better in the intense heat of the car. Jay Pennell of Fox Sports, caught up with Rookie, Justin Allgaier for some insights into the rigors of heat and the track.
"It's amazing how hot it is inside these cars," Allgaier said. "That's more of it than the physical side. When you get done with a race, your muscles aren't sore. You're just so hot and exhausted because of the heat.
"I heard a long time ago ... they used to drive around in the summer with their windows up and the heater on," he said, channeling NASCAR Hall of Famer Bobby Allison. "I tried that when I was younger, and it actually works. You're going to be miserable when you're doing it, and you better not be going anywhere, because you're going to be sweating like crazy. But it's amazing what the heat training is and how important it is to making it 600 miles."
