Weather is still looking pretty bleak for today. It's a long track and it takes time to dry. However we have the new NASCAR track drying system....has that been battle tested yet? Another big obstacle is that I believe Dega still does not have lights.

I am hearing tomorrow's Cup race is 50/50 as of now.

Is this practice session on now a replay, or? Ugh that blows. Imagine if you took the weekend off of work to go to Dega and they have to reschedule.

Damn weather.

Green flag is supposed to be in about an hour... I'm not sure if it will due to rain. We'll probably know when it gets closer to race time if they can dry the track out.

After quali for the sprint race was rained out, nascar posted this

Qualifying had been scheduled for 12:10 a.m. ET. As of 1 p.m., it still was raining, but the forecast called for it to clear. The Nationwide Series race was scheduled for 3 p.m. Series director Wayne Auton told drivers in a pre-race meeting that if the event were postponed, it would be run on Sunday afternoon after the Aaron's 499, which is scheduled for a 1 p.m. ET start.



edit: still raining

NASCAR contracts state that the concession stands must get 90 minutes to sell before the green flag.

That's like, an eviction level crime. You can steal a slice of roommate's bread or soemthing, but you can't steal a chunk or the last piece of anything. And certainly not what we'd consider a Tier 1 kitchen item.

I know, I'm freakin' livid. Busted my ass all day and that's all that's on my mind, my steak, some beer, racing.

I will have words. Also, whatever dishes I use for tonight's replacement meal will find a cosy spot under his pillow.

Hmm didn't realize it was so cool at Talladega. 52 degrees, that explains the ability to stay stuck together.

Oooh Karma for Kyle?

You know who should have been in a Turner car for this race? Son of Alabama Cale Gale. Why Turner has him stuck as a crew chief in K&N is beyond me. :down:

Bah, dammit. I knew that was going to happen when I saw Bayne and Hornish get shuffled back and get stuck behind Johanna Long.

Let's just end this thing. It's too dark.
