    The rain hasn't gone through the mountains yet. It was supposed to rain all morning until about 5 tonight, but it didn't.

    Erik Jones! That was a fun race! Kind of a mix of old and new Bristol, with the bottom being the preferred line, but that top line somewhat able to work and it should only increase going into tomorrow (or Monday).

    EDIT: Looks like the 22 failed post race inspection, via Bob Pockrass.

    The forecast is horrible all day and night – near 100 percent chance of rain for the remainder of Sunday, which means the race might take place Monday, but as of 10 a.m. that call hasn’t been made yet...
    why 10 am ?? the hell put it on 1 PM

    Disappointing to cancel it this damn early. This won't make many people happy.

    Why would they? Rain has been getting worse and worse. They're expecting up to 3 inches of rain today. We'd be constantly drying the track all day just to get a few laps in here and there,all to race to the end of the second stage. Simultaneously leaving the fans soaked. Isn't fun for anyone. Don't waste everyone's time; try again tomorrow.

    Not to mention the current radar...

    It's noon and the track has lights. They've ran races past 3 AM before. They didn't even try.

    Fair point actually, I really liked watching the Coke Zero 400 that late, it'd be epic to see a Bristol version of that.

    Whatever you want to think. I guess I'm just pissed I won't get to see the race in person now.

    And straight from the National Weather Service....there is >90% chance of rain until 10pm, with about an 80% chance of rain until 2 in the morning.

    So we should run a race from 2-5am? I'm just confused, what should have been NASCAR's plan here? It's going to rain all day, with no chance of starting the race until the middle of the night. Who's going to watch?What driver would want to race at that time?

    Totally understand the frustration man, but I'm just stating the facts. They need a 3 hour window to dry the track because of the temperature. Easy decision to not waste people's time and just call it a day.

    I'd want to run a race from 2-5, since there would be a chance of a night to day race lol.
