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

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.

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.

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

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.
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
