I heard the same thing. Out of all the carpet tracks I have raced on (5 in total) only one of them did not use CRC-brand Fasttrak-HD racing carpet. That was Mike's Hobby Shop in Carrollton, TX. Mike bought his carpet from a local contractor's supply warehouse. The carpet had the Ozite's brand name on it.
I did some research and found that Ozite's carpets have an anti-static feature that’s a permanent part of the nylon carpet fiber. Technically, it's a carbon core inside the nylon fiber that conducts electricity and it cannot be lost or broken down by cleanings or wear.
