FAST Cooling-Keeping you cool!

FAST Cooling (formally known as: Fresh Air Systems Technologies) is a family owned business, a Mom and Pop shop (actually more of a Mom and Son plus Grandma and more), right here in the Midwest. We make our products in house at our manufacturing facility in Des Plaines, IL. We have 3 generations of family working here, along with other employees that we have adopted as our own (and a shop cat). We eat lunch together, have coffee breaks together and there will always be room for our loyal customers to visit. We would love to include you into our FAST Cooling family. If you find yourself in the Chicago area, let us know. We will roll out the red carpet for you!

FAST Cooling started in a garage in Arlington Heights, IL at the home of founder Chris Raffo in 1982. Chris was a Baja truck driver and was sick of eating dirt. He created a helmet that brought filtered air directly to his mouth, without allowing the dust to come in from under the helmet.

Helmet manufacturers followed his lead and the Sidewinder helmet was created. This set up the foundation for our relationships with other manufacturers of safety equipment and we have cultivated these relationships for over 33 years.

We have added many styles of blowers and filters to our product line over the years, so we have something for every venue of racing. FAST Cooling was also the first company to come out with COOL filtered air, by adding a cooler with a heat extrusion packed full of ice to drop the temperature of the air going to your helmet (keeping your head cool). We have blowers, filters and cooling for every type of racing you could imagine including drag racing, off road trucks, stock car, sports car, formula car, go-karts, legends, monster trucks, drag boats, powerboats and more! Give us a call to see what might suit your needs.

It is an honor to be nominated for the MX-5 Cup Shootout for the third year in a row! Every year, I've improved and this could be my best chance so far, but it is never easy to come away with the scholarship with the quality of drivers that make it there every year. Congratulations to my fellow nominees, I look forward to competing with you soon!

Warm memories from the 2021 Mazda MX-5 Cup Shootout are helping us get through days like today where it's a balmy eight degrees outside! Special thanks to the folks at Ignite Media for the photos and all the partners that made the event possible!

The 2021 Mazda MX-5 Cup season was one we will never forget. We had the honor of winning the Championship and Team of the Year awards against a deeply talented field of drivers and teams who we are so grateful to share the paddock with. We are thankful for all the sponsors who make this series happen and look forward to seeing everyone back early next year.

Welp. Things didn't turn out quite the way we were hoping, but Mazda Motorsports is all about and so is Michael Borden Racing.
We'd like to thank Flis Performance for a great car, BFGoodrich Tires for a set of tires that held up for two days in the Florida heat, the always perfect PAGID Racing brakes that Michael never has to worry about, they're just there being excellent, FAST Cooling for helping Michael keep cool and make great decisions in the car, VP Racing Fuels for helping him go fast, Idemitsu Lubricants America for making the Mazda MX-5 Cup series possible, and of course Mazda Motorsports for the opportunity.

Heartiest congratulations to the winners, Connor Zilisch Racing Bryce Cornet and Laura from TBR Racing.
Cool video clip. Give it a like. 5 drivers lives will be changed this afternoon thanks to Mazda!

Michael had a great first day here at the Mazda MX-5 Cup Shootout in the Flis Performance car. After throwing around a Spec MX-5 all year and with some amazing coaching from Andrew Carbonell and Tom Long things started to click in the last session.

Michael is enjoying the short track course layout and once again, Mazda Motorsports have chosen an awesome group of finalists that are not only quality drivers, but quality people.

Speaking of quality, the partners for this event could not be of a higher caliber.

Thanks to Mazda Motorsports, Flis Performance, PAGID Racing , BFGoodrich Tires, VP Racing Fuels , FAST Cooling , and Idemitsu Lubricants America !
Good morning from a sunny Sebring International Raceway and the Mazda MX-5 Cup Shootout!

Michael had to switch cars at the last minute, but you can check out the live in-car feed at the link below. Michael is feeling good about today and who wouldn't with this equipment? All the thanks to:

We are happy to announce that Mazda Motorsports has once again selected Michael as a finalist for the MX-5 Cup Shootout! All the details are available if you click on the link below!

We'd like to thank the judges for including Michael, and congratulate his fellow nominees.

We'd also like to thank the many people that helped Michael get here this year, including Coinigy, Advanced Autosports, Lemons of Love, and FAST Cooling. We could not do it without you.
Here's the latest Spec MX-5 standings! As always, we absolutely could not do what we do without the support of many others!

Thank you to Coinigy for always believing in us, right from the start.

Thank you to Advanced Autosports for guiding us on this motorsports journey and for giving us a great car over and over and over, and if something isn't great.. it's fixed before the next session if at all possible. They always go the extra mile to make sure we're in a position to win!

Thank you to Lemons of Love for your incredible support this past year. You've picked us up more times than we can count.

Thank you to Mazda Motorsports for being such a great partner! We're excited to continue with you and help grow the Spec MX-5 class any way we can!

Thank you to FAST Cooling . This year has been hit as heck, and the weekend at Mid-Ohio was no different! You've kept Michael cool and levelheaded in the car, and we could not do it without you.

Thank you to PAGID Racing for the incredible brake system! Michael never worries about brakes and can go deep when he needs to with full confidence in his system.

Thank you to Toyo Tires for a great spec tire in the series!

Thank you to Pegasus Auto Racing Supplies for the odds and ends we need to keep things going, race after race!
The #42 Coinigy Advanced Autosports Lemons of Love Spec MX-5 is still getting some engine issues sorted, but the weekend wasn't a wash by any means.

After Michael had an off in T3 during the race Saturday, he came back stronger than ever Sunday, fighting off intense heat (thanks to FAST Cooling) and even more intense competition from Alex Bertagnoli. Although Michael led most of Sunday's race, the lapped traffic of the B-Spec class proved troublesome. Michael and Alex battled back and forth with the last couple of laps seeing lots of lead changes, but Alex emerged victorious when the checkered flag was dropped, winning by only two hundredths of a second.

Special thanks to Ben, Patti, Austin, and Jake at Advanced for keeping us happy on and off the track.
Thank you to some of our sponsors who have been with us since the beginning of the Mazda MX-5 Cup Car Giveaway. To Battery Tender , FAST Cooling and RaceQuip, we thank you!
Not the way I wanted to end off my race weekend. Definitely pretty sore today but unfortunately that’s just part of the sport. Big thanks to all the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series crew and track safety crew for getting to me so fast. Just a bummer because I definitely was having a great night and thought we were finally going to make that first outlaws a main. Thanks to everyone who checked in on me after it happened and to all the people who make these cars and all our safety equipment. Could’ve been a lot worse on me, don’t be cheap when it comes to safety equipment, cars and parts can be replaced not you. We already have a spare car ready to race and will probably just take a weekend off to build a new car and just let my body recoup.
