Just a thought, but if they can prevent this race from turning into the 24 Hours of NASCAR again ... that would be the way to go.

Your article was right on, except for one thing......You state February is the wettest month here. Not so, January has typically always been the wettest month here in Southern California! But with the way our weather has been in last several years, nothing is really typical anymore...

Your article hits the mark perfectly. From the start, NASCAR could have given us an idea as to how long the delay would be until the start of the Sunday race. It stopped raining at noon and the race didn't start until about 3 PM. At 6 PM, when the rain returned, they could have called it for good. At least some of us who work could have planned for another race on Monday given a few hours time. When I finally went to bed, the race was still on. I didn't find out until early the next morning it was cancelled. By then it was too late to make any plans.
What was NASCAR's response to all of us who threw a lot of money down and didn't get to see a race? They sent us an e-mail saying: "Even as the media attempts to find someone to blame for the rain, NASCAR fans will not be fooled..." They are offering us free General Admission to the Saturday track activities on August 30. Big deal! I could care less about the Saturday activities. They are right. We won't be fooled by them any more.
