CHARLOTTE, N.C. — NASCAR will have its new track-drying system available for the Daytona 500, although the system likely will not have been perfected by then. The goal is to get a track such the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway dry in about 30 minutes instead of what is typically a two- or two-and-a-half-hour process. A half-mile track such as Martinsville, which usually takes 45-60 minutes to dry, could be dry in 15 minutes.
