The weather (weather.com, accuweather.com) for the worst threat of rain between 2-4 PM. 1 PM start was idiotic. Sure enough 3:15 they have to stop the race due to an approaching thunderstorm. Just like I predicted. Now gonna be here all damn evening.
Some people mentioned women’s soccer. That’s ridiculous. Different network, and most NASCAR fans don’t watch women’s soccer.
They’ve called for people to evacuated the stands due to approaching t-storm even though not raining yet. **** them. I’m staying right here along with thousands of other people. Still have plenty of beer.
This is why I quit NASCAR after 40+ years of attending races. It became a **** chore. All they care about is the TV audience and how many commercials they can show.
F1: 1.5 hours, rain or shine, and then you hit the exits. Commercial-free on TV. Can't wait for SIlverstone next week. Great track.
I don't know about the TV audience. The incessant babbling by Earnhardt Jr., Letarte, and Burton will drive away the last 17 fans. I mean could we just have 5 seconds of silence every once in a while? And not one of them has a voice appropriate for what is essentially a radio broadcast. They are like 3 old gabby women!
