Just looked at the radar. They might get it in...but this looks like it's going to be VERY iffy - at best.

Guess we'll have to see what happens.

Well, it does look like the rain has cleared out, so the odds might be in their favor

Been raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock here for three days. FFS, my house is flooded.

Yeah, they've got a window of about 2 hours to get this in before it begins raining again - assuming the radar forecast holds true.

Looks like half a race? They are going to have a very hard time delaying this a day (or more) with the 600 Sunday

In theory they could.  Next race is Charlotte, so in theory they could delay it to Saturday, and run the 600 the next day.

I'm actually curious on the bare minimum turnaround time. Not what they'd prefer... But could they truly turnaround in less than a day?

LaJoie and McCloud fail inspection, which moves them from 31st and 38th respectively to (checks notes) 38th and 39th.

Any word on a start time?  The only thing posted on Nascar's twitter in the past 2 hours is a stupid joke.  Which is appropriate, I guess.
 
2020-05-20 7:06:47 PM  
At least this docu on the 600 is pretty decent, if slightly old.

Prediction: They definitely won't talk about the levigating fiasco, even though this was made after that.

I believe they scraped the track or ground it down.  Made the track bad fast, and the tires couldn't handle it.
 
2020-05-20 7:12:20 PM  
We're back
 
2020-05-20 7:12:55 PM  
IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN

for like 50 laps, then more rain will come

Yeah, it worked out fantastically at whatever track they copied it from, but it was a complete clusterfark at Charlotte with these cars.

I remember typing "Levigating = ruining" into a Nascar.com chatroom as it was going on.

We saw the person responsible for the drone

Oh, and I'm about 75% sure it was grinding it.

Watching the most recent Dale Jr. Download, with Meds as the guest, killing time for now.

The Download just may be the best program currently on TV/podcast.

Considering that I got emails today from a t-shirt vendor that I've used before offering that very service... It'll happen by Charlotte

looked at the weather, and it looks clear to the west, which I assume is a good thing. The big storm is far to the east. And if the wind is blowing that way, we should get this race in.

OK, Denny's daughter with the remote, and Denny with the face face mask has given him some cool points.  He's still a dick, though.

Fiancée wants to know if there's ever been a Jewish driver. Can't think of any, myself.

NASCAR and Denny got some USA Today, People magazine and Morning chat show PR out of that story

I know he wasn't at the last race, but I have great feelings about Kyle Larson tonight.
