Welcome to the Guys and Gears series presented by Mobil 1. Each time a NASCAR figure will bring you behind the scenes and give you a tour of something that they are working on that keeps them connected to the sport.

Today, Jerry Kaproth, manager of race track infrastructure standards for NASCAR, gives you an in-depth look at the technology that powers the Air Titan 2.0 -- with an assist from NASCAR Sprint Cup Series star Tony Stewart. Watch the video above to learn about Mobil 1's role in the state-of-the-art track-drying system, and how the enhanced version of the Air Titan fits in with the NASCAR Green initiative as well.
