@TheCincyBuckeye
@odsteve Will NASCAR add a 13th jet dryer when they go back out? Do we know if they are all giving 100% or are any laying back?

crotchgrabber: kteela: Yeah, I'm guessing no one will stream it either.

not exactly optimistic or pessimistic.

The optimist says the glass is half full.
Pessimist says half empty.
The realist says the water is farking polluted.


The engineer says the glass is too big for the amount of water

Dumb-Ass-Monkey: Still no official word

But I would have to assume that they're be running tomorrow. It's what, almost 6:30 in Chicago? even if they got the track dried and the race restarted in the next half hour or so, night would fall before the race could come close to finishing.


They have lights, they are only 30-40 laps from halfway, they will get it in barring a new line of rain coming through.

And the scientist says the glass is full - half with liquid, half with vapor.  :)

radar looks good. there is a chance they could get the track dry and run.

Espn just showed a live shot of the track about 10 minutes ago and it looked like it was still drizzling
 
2013-09-15 07:39:40 PM
The butthurt is sooooooo bad on the ESPN chat right now. Like braking is not giving 100% type stuff.

Truly pedantic whiny biatches.

Warmachine999: Do we know what channel the race will be on when it comes back?  My wife took over the TV at the start of the rain delay and I don't remember what channel it was on to check.


NASCAR twitter feed says ESPN2.

Btw

In reference to comments made 6-7 hours ago:

This is exactly what NASCAR didnt need. Just send France down to award the cup to whoever they want to win it and let's end this gracefully
 
2013-09-15 07:43:04 PM
Unconfirmed per ESPN - bumped to noon tomorrow

Give one to Tim Richmond. Make them people's head asplode.

Reported raining at the track again. Pretty sure the plugs gonna get yanked.

NBC should be starting 49ers vs
seagulls in about 10 minutes which means espn loses the ability to retain viewers while running commercials every 5 minutes...
 
2013-09-15 07:54:08 PM
MRN saying there is fog at the track but the track IS drying.

Plug might be pulled though.
 
2013-09-15 07:54:14 PM
Sounds like the driers have been fired back up.
 
2013-09-15 07:56:11 PM
Not even sprinkling right now.

Always good to have a farker on the ground.

Steve O'Donnell @odsteve 3m
Issue right now is rain has not stopped, still misting which makes drying extremely difficult. Minimum 2 hours from when rain stops

If it's still misting, they'll never keep a clean windsheild. Wreck-o-rama under the lights.
 
2013-09-15 08:02:04 PM
MRN is back on the air.

The radar shows the cell has moved out, but there's low-hanging clouds and mist, hampering drying efforts.  They are still going to try to run it tonight.  Throwing it back to affiliates until 9 p.m. Eastern.
 
2013-09-15 08:04:48 PM
NASCAR.com says that the race will finish tonight.  ESPN2 says that they will return to the track at some point tonight.  Either way, I guess I get to watch football talk for a while.

Don't remind me, I'm watching this rain delayed Saint-Bucs nightmare.

Why is it every network is using a blonde girl as a sideline reporter?!

What happened to all the cute brunettes and redheads?

The WWE has never encountered a rain delay. Probably.

@odsteve: Dry strip coming in on track. Looking like 9 central at this point

Seriously? That late?

They've restarted races as late as 11pm. Depends on the local laws.

Was that the one where Juan Pablo blew up the jet dryer and melted the track?

Ya that was the first NASCAR race my wife had ever watched...

Everything ever since has been a disappointment

Okay I've wondered this for a while, and feel like a rain delay is when to ask it. I've always heard people talking about collecting the badges, how in the hell does the badge thing work?

You gotta start caring about more teams.  We still have football.  Go 49rs!

I had to say something.  Lightning delay in Seattle.

Sigh.  Is there a hockey game on?
 
2013-09-15 09:06:36 PM
What? Just get the Seahawks and 9ers to put on rain tires and play on.

Miss America?

Holy buckets...even football is in a rain delay? This has not been a good sports day.
 
2013-09-15 09:08:24 PM
Back in the stands. Track looks good; Jet dryers are doing their thing, and every available service vehicle is doing laps inside the stripe to dry that part off as well.

Well, lightning. It was for an hour. They went and made the last 3 minutes anxiety inducing. Sucked the padding out of the seat of my chair.

Drew Brees could run for governor right now.

Found the Sabres game.  Phew!

ESPN2 has cars going real fast.  For 4 seconds.  In a straight line.

I find it kinda boring, actually.

Darrell's can wouldn't be impressed either, I bet.

Crews are heading out to the cars parked on pit road.
