Nice find.

They leave out the fact that aviation and race cars will us 99.999% technical pure bottled nitrogen...whereas tire shops use 'nitrogen concentrators' that get no better than 94%. And still can have moisture in it.

At the track, having a bottle of N2 for filling shocks and tires is just easy.
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
