If you time it right, you can run to Walgreens and get a COVID test between races and miss nothing. Probably only a cold but I’m in a crowded room tomorrow

Yeah, but you see… WE WOULD STILL BE IN A DELAY RIGHT NOW! But oh boy! We would’ve got like maybe 30-40 minutes of racing already! YIPPIE!! Like, it doesn’t change much here lol..

If we started at 1pm, we would've had half the race in by now. And that "window" could allow them to finish the race before dark.

Or we don’t get a full race :eek: because they just… SHOCKING… call it…. Lol.

But I doubt they would be even past half way in that time. But I personally rather the race be delayed til tomorrow if it means we get a full race, over a race to halfway..

I'd rather not start races at Stupid:30pm at tracks that don't have lights.

Yeah sure, but I am just saying this is one time it doesn’t really change much. Because a “1 pm start time” wouldn’t really be 1 pm, probably like 1:15 or so. Which means we wouldn’t even be pass halfway. Now the time the races start at like 3, and it rains at say 5 something, then yeh the 1 pm start time would mean it’s over. Here we still be probably coming back tomorrow.!

My favorite ones are when they complain about it, but if they started when they wanted it to, it be an official race, so we wouldn’t even get a full race…
I've already seen one darn good race today. There's another one opposite this. Nobody on this forum will die or even be out any money if this sucker is cancelled out right, much less delayed until Monday.

Get lives, people.

Kyle Busch about to go Truck racing next season, win the championship and become first person to have one in all 3 series, then retire.

Totally forgot about the IndyCar race, I could probably just watch it while this one isn’t going..

NASCAR doesn't call races off at 2:30pm unless the 43 car is leading at Daytona on the 20th anniversary of Richard Petty's "200th win."

You're the one who summoned this discussion.

Seriously? Because I've been expecting that for years.
I could see it, I mean I’m just throwing out ideas but I am sure it happens at some point.

My dream scenario is actually him and Harvick doing it at the same time. Could you picture Kyle and Kevin retiring from Cup at the same time, dropping to trucks and battling it out for the championship?

Conveniently it started pouring with lightning in Nashville around the same time it started raining in Brooklyn.

At least IMSA got moved up three hours. That paid off well.

Look at the radar, it’s up til like 6 pm with rain, then the time it takes to dry and everything. Without it starting I don’t think they would start that late. So yeah, it’s better they have not started yet. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

And late starts still suck.

Yeah sure. Say that. That’s not my beef. My beef is when people use it for “this race would be official by now.” Or something dumb like that, which means we don’t get a full race.


Would you rather get half a race on Sunday, or a full race on Monday? Don’t move the goal post, don’t make a third answer, pick one of the two options.

Well with how many winners we have this season, and how many folks who haven’t won who could win, it’s actually something to talk about. Not sure what folks want them to talk about when it’s a rain delay…

The rain to the West has been falling apart and might have completely dissipated before it gets to the track, but I don't even know if there's enough time to dry the track and race before it gets dark.
