Doesn't look good for an on time start. How about rain delay race replay from when Jr was still racing with commentary by Steve and Jr?

I truly believe that superspeedways are not the real issue. It's over aggressive drivers not realizing that the race is 500 freaking miles long. Blocking on lap 10? Yeah, that's a recipe for disaster.

If these guys would use their heads, we could get a decent finish. These SS races are designed to produce awesome finishes. But instead they all wreck themselves.

The tracks are designed to put everyone in a big ass pack all race long, which increases the chances of a gigantic wreck like the ones we always get at these places.

Of course they're the real issue.

The tracks were designed 60+ years ago. The cars are designed to stay out of the grandstands of these antiques, which puts everyone in a big ass pack. The tracks weren't designed to put everyone in a packck, but redesigning them would allow the cars to separate.

Minor quibble, same solution we'll never get.

Should be a good one. I think handling and tire wear will matter with the heat.

Threat of rain looks to be over for the next hour+. Should easily be able to get to halfway.
