Kenseth to the 20, Logano to the 22 next year

Damn! Looks like it's going to get rained out tonight, hope they don't lose their heads and try to run this thing at like 9 AM EST tomorrow morning so they don't go up against the NFL games.

Romney's going to the race? The fans are going to LOVE the "cooler check" line being three hours long.

My first time at RIR I didn't know hardside coolers weren't allowed, so I double-trash-bagged a 12-pack with some ice. The cooler line was massive and I went to the "no cooler" line and the guy said "Don't look like no cooler to me. G'head."

Made it to my seat for the green flag...and the rain started back up and red-flagged the whole thing until Sunday.

/capital yarn, old bean.

Kind of feel bad for Hornish.

Baby Face Fister: Kind of feel bad for Hornish.


Penske wants to keep him around, but they don't want to field another Cup car.

Likewise, Gibbs said they would've loved to have kept Logono, and offered him a part time ride next year with the possibility of adding a 4th Cup car in 2014, but the Penske offer (full time in the 22) was too good to pass up.

..anyone have a weather update?
 
2012-09-08 04:34:13 PM
Yeah, probably gonna rain. :(
 
2012-09-08 05:11:53 PM
Just looking at weather.com it seems like the hourly spikes from 70% chance to 30% chance all night.  Its a quick track to dry I assume... but not looking good.
 
Crap.  Was really excited that this wouldn't interferre with football tomorrow.
 
Tomorrow is looking just fine at RIR.  Cloudy, no rain.

Looks like once this line moves through Richmond we might be ok by 8pm.

Brad Panovich WCNC @wxbrad
2 things working in favor of racing tonight, behind the front its dry & windy should be easy to dry the track by 8.

Woot, race thread up *before* the TV coverage begins! And to fix part of the headline for the better:

Can Jeff Gordon knock Kyle Busch out of the Chase and knock himself and He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named out of the race?

At least you'll have numbed yourself by the time they start with the 5 minutes of commercials followed by 3 minutes of racing cycle.

Ya mean you haven't started drinking already? Yikes, it's hours past noon already :)

Actually, I wouldn't mind if it was delayed until tomorrow. I'll be at the Rolex race and there's nothing better than watching some racing while watching some racing. Dawg.

Sorry, sitting this one out due do a little problem breathing. I'll be at VIR for the American LeMans Series race next weekend,then Martinsville for both the NASCAR late model stock race and the Cup and truck race the following weekend.

I'll make sure I have plenty posted those weekends, tho.

They will probably try to get the track dry in time for an 8:30 PM ET or so start, but they may call it for tomorrow if they can't make the start by 9:30 PM ET at the latest, would be my guess.

That gives me time to get home from work. Yes farkers, I'm in the office. Stop bragging about your beer and couches.

But if it's anything like the storm we had up near DC it'll dry out pretty quick and they may get it in.

.

I can't imagine what a little problem breathing might be. Seems any problem with that would be a big problem. Feel better soon!
 
2012-09-08 06:45:16 PM
First NASCAR race day thread for me! Woo hoo! Go Dale! Go...well, anybody but the 48.

Looking at the pre-race on Speed, I have to say...doesn't Joey Logano have a perfectly punchable face?
 
2012-09-08 06:47:49 PM
Might have to be a delayed thread if the rain doesn't go away

Jenna Fryer @JennaFryer

If race does not run tonight, it will be at 1 pm tomorrow on ESPN

Try breathing with a few bruised ribs, I did last year, I can't imagine what having cracked/broken ribs would feel like, my bruised ribs felt bad enough.

Rain will last about an hour @RIRinsider about an hour to dry. Then there is about a 3-4 hour window.

On the upside, when it rains torrentially like this, at least the Noah's-ARCA series can run.

Sounds like my 8:30 PM-9:30 PM start time estimate might hold up.

They are about to throw it back to the affiliates until 8pm.
 
2012-09-08 07:12:23 PM
From the front page of NASCAR.com:

"7:03 p.m. ET -- ABC is showing the conclusion of the USC-Syracuse college football during the rain delay. One of the announcers just asked if Danica Patrick was in The Chase. Oh, dear ... "

mikaloyd: ABC is showing Syracuse and USC here



They would have anyway, its a scheduled game just going late.  However they never put NASCAR Countdown on any ESPN stations (WTF are those ESPN alternate stations for anyway??).
 
I generally don't watch the Countdown crap, but wanted to get a first hand report.
 
I guess I'll stick with the twitterererers in this thread

Yes. I could start using Atlantic time. Or Newfoundland, for real lulz.

Danica is indeed in the chase ABC..... the chase for a good deal on a dishwasher.
 
2012-09-08 07:31:40 PM
@KensethClub
Claire B Lang on SiriusXM just said she's hearing "around 10" Eastern for a start time tonight. If the rain clears out.
 
2012-09-08 07:33:15 PM
Is anybody else getting Syracuse vs. USC instead of a wet pre-race show?
 
2012-09-08 07:33:55 PM
well, sh*t

if I'd have known, I would have waited til now to watch the new Who.

Ah well, it was a hell of an episode

Yes, they are on a rain delay, so ABC, in their infinite wisdom, decided to show us the thrilling USC-Syracuse game.

Is Roush getting a new driver for the 17 next year, or did they trade the car to the Dodgers?
