    Not much to see there. McIlroy has 5 birdies in the first 7 holes to jump to a 3 stroke lead over Kuchar.

    Starting to get optimistic about a Monday race. Rain keeps building.

    Isn’t 5 kind of late to start tho?
     
  16. FS1 has World Cup action. Rain is still expected, too.

    Have to finish the soccer games.

    Will still have about 4 hours of good daylight.
    I do feel sorry for the crew families that had planned on starting their vacations on Monday. :(

    Do all the Fox Channels have them? Like none of those are open?

    I picked a perfect day to play 18 even though I hacked it up big time.

    I think there are eight matches a day so pretty much all of the Fox networks.

    I checked and all I saw was FS1 having them. I’ll have to check again but yeah. Idk oh well.

    Brutal considering today has been the only rainy one in awhile. Shame but I’ll probably go to Kentucky here in a month

    Sucks for fans in attendance but a 5 pm start is great for TV

    Regardless it’s the safe move! Supposed to be on and off rain until this afternoon

    Not all fans. This has worked perfectly for me to attend. Should get a prime parking spot, plenty of room to roam around in the stands and hopefully score a cheap ticket.

    No sir, but the sun does not set until about 9:00-9:30.

    Why can’t they just race earlier and put it on FS2?

    Unless my DISH guide is screwed up they’re showing cliff diving and years-old fighting crap.

    I agree. I don't see what the problem is having it on FS2 (and a replay on FS1 in the evening) and having a free courtesy stream on NASCAR.com and/or Fox Sports app for those not able to get FS2.

    FOX probably doesn't want any of their live event programming to overlap. And also saw an opportunity to get a better audience for a Monday postponement race.

    If they really wanted to they could've put the race on FOX Business (which had literally zero of the Top 150 cable programs last Monday) like they have with Truck before. But that doesn't get a 5 PM on FS1 audience.

    This is really good for people who have jobs. I've already taken one NASCAR sick day.

    I am actually pretty excited for today's race. Rushing through work so I can get done, I work for myself so leaving early isnt an issue. I am going to head to the store on the way home to pick up steak kabobs and chicken breasts and have a little late afternoon/early evening cook out while the race is going on. Nice way to end a Monday than I usually do. I think the time has come for NASCAR to have week day races, they really need to jump on the day after the MLB all star game. I think it would be a huge success.

    I was a bit surprised to hear a radio report the other day. The Tuesday and Wednesday before March Madness is popular for voluntary surgeries requiring multi-day recoveries.

    Let me know how that went for you! I considered going up there today, it’s only about a 3 hour ride for me, but I’m pretty broke this week so I decided not to. I’ve heard sometimes they don’t even check tickets and just leave the gates open on Monday races. Definitely heard that was happening with the race at MIS a few years ago on a Tuesday
