GASTONIA, NC — WIX Filters has launched its carbon monoxide cabin air filtration system into the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
After a successful start last season in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series with the Joe Gibbs Racing team, the WIX Filters U.S. patent pending carbon monoxide cabin air filtration system ran in Robert Huffman’s No. 12 Toyota Tundra Toyota for the first time in a NASCAR Craftsman Truck Race at Richmond on September 9.
In 2003, WIX Filters teamed up with Joe Gibbs Racing to develop a new cabin air filtration system to protect drivers’ respiratory systems from particulate matter, like dust, soot and rubber, noxious fumes, gas and oil vapors – and most importantly – from carbon monoxide.
The carbon monoxide cabin air filtration system from WIX Filters is seeing expansion with other key race teams. At this time, the teams at Hendrick Motorsports, Dale Earnhardt Inc. and Richard Childress Racing are currently working with WIX Filters’ engineers and advisors to implement the system in their race cars as well.
