    Even so, I wouldn't wait that many hours to dry the track. I know the Coke Zero 400 has started real late in 2005 & 2015, But i honestly still wish they had postponed the 2015 race.

    What is wrong with having the 24 Hours at Bristol? Lol. I am disappointed that they won't be racing today because well I am off. Except for the 4 hours overtime I put in this morning. I have to work tomorrow so I won't be able to see the race live. Thank you to DVR and internet access at work. Lol.

    I live in TN, and it has done nothing but rain since late Thursday evening. Everything is flooding. Even areas that don't normally flood are flooding. Nascar is at a lose lose right now. They made the call early (as I would have done), and fans are bitching and complaining (as evidence by this thread). They try and wait it out all day with fans wondering when the race will happen and eventually have to call it, and fans will bitch and complain. Nascar made the right call. With weather going on in TN right now, they aren't racing today...period.

    Well, this sucks since I will be at work when the race is on. Now I have to look forward to avoiding spoilers all day (another co-worker is a NASCAR fan, so I'll have to ask him not to ruin the results for me) until I get home and watch the race on the DVR.

    When a race being postponed isn't a problem because your work consists of covering the sport anyway.

    If only I didn't need to go to class tomorrow.. I have to leave around 1:45 and won't get home until 4:30. Here's hoping for more rain! LOL

    For those who don't think the race should've been postponed, go look at Tri-Cities Weather and Alert Crew FB page. There is a river running around the speedway and through the parking lots. There is water everywhere at Bristol.

    Postponent to Monday means there's still time to submit your picks for Pick'em! Just look for the Bristol thread stickied to the top of this forum.

    Everybody's welcome to play, including those who have never played before. We love having people win their first time playing! Make Monday more exciting and give it a shot!

    Highly doubt this race happens today. Huge system moving to the northwest from the coast that'll be practically stagnant until tomorrow evening.

    Think we'll get the race in today, possible that we'll have a delay or two but there's definitely a solid window early afternoon.

    It was dry enough this morning for the track to re-apply the VHT to the bottom groove, so that's a good sign.

    I, for one, am enjoying having unlimited data to stream this race from work.
