At Michigan International Speedway in August 2007, Brush watched jet dryers circle the track for two days as the Sprint Cup race was delayed from Sunday until Tuesday.
"I was sitting there thinking, 'There's got to be a better way to dry this place,' " said the Kingsville, Ontario, native, who has attended races at MIS for nearly 20 years.
After six months of research and a year of development, Brush believes he has a better alternative. The project manager for a steel fabrication company in Canada has designed a track dryer that travels about twice the speed as the current jet dryers used at NASCAR tracks.
