The Pit Stop


August 20, 2007 3:03 PM

Rain kills race to Tuesday at 10AM.....

This is the first time since an April Talladega race in 1997 did we have two days in a row of cancellations to a NASCAR race. That race was completed two weeks later.

It is possible to run the race on Wednesday since it around a half day trip with some pit stop or two to get to the Bristol race that will run on Saturday night.

If the race gets fully postponed it will be the last race of the NASCAR season and decide the NASCAR champion. It will also make the New Hampshire International Speedway race on September 16 the final race to decide who makes it into the chase.

In 2003-2006 years only 2 races got pushed to another day.

This race is still going to to get air time on ESPN2 if it ever does start.
