This one is for the speed demons and rednecks among us.
You know who you are. Unless you’re too drunk to know better… Never mind.
Here’s the skinny: NASCAR postponed The Great American Race after heavy rain saturated Daytona International Speedway on Sunday.
Officials spent more than four hours waiting for a window to dry the famed track, but their prayers and human sacrifices (Hey, it could have happened!) were in vain. And when the latest storm cell passed over the speedway, they had little choice but to call it a day and reschedule.
Can you imagine the uproar? I would have loved to have seen the crowd’s faces; the looks of sheer horror and disgust pasted on their drooling faces would have been priceless!
The 500-mile race was rescheduled for Noon ET on Monday. It will be aired on Fox.
If Fate is through toying with NASCAR, that is.
