    Sad thing is these practice's might be for a race that never happens :(

    Why would it not happen? Too much money is to be made not to run it Sunday or Monday.

    really? I thought since its a exhibition race they would not run it.

    Yeah it's supposed to start raining around 6pm tomorrow night and last pretty late into the evening. By the time it stops raining and they dry it up it could be midnight/1am possibly. They've run that late there before, but they were big points paying races.

    We'll see, we all know how the weather can be.

    Too much invested in the TV contracts with FOX [and NBC] to just not run this due to rain, viewership for the race is decent considering it's the opening race of the year.

    My money would be on Sunday if it cant go Sat.
    That would be a good ticket if they did both on Sun.

    Like always, the race will be ran on the next available day.

    Who knows what tomorrow will bring? Weather forecasts aren't always reliable.

    Ok. I must be so dumb.... When did they announce that the duels give you points now?

    I am going to have to go to my new place to watch the practices and races. My daughter doesn't have FS1.

    The day that they announced the points changes to the series for the Chase, err, playoff system.

    Glad you like it. Most all those pics I post will enlarge when you click on them. People that don't like pics really need to block me if they want to avoid them. I love me some decent NASCAR pics. I've got HD's full of them. Add to them every day.
