	That's not what the announcer giving the tip said...he said the exact
opposite! The theory, related to him by NASCAR teams, was that the dust
slid right off(i.e. did not stick) and thus was not present during stops
to cause havoc...So if true for us too, not only are our wheels kept
clean, but the monkeys changing our tires can breath easier.
