Um, the fans had to choose to stay even though bad weather was thratening. Nascar didn't hold them hostage, did they? I know the races cost alot & yes, I agree that they should call the race for bad weather sooner so the fans can safely leave but in the end no one "makes" them stay, they choose too. I have left races when bad weather was threatening even though they didn't call the race, money isn't more important to me then my life.

I echo that. I was at that race and even though I didn't want to go...I chose to leave so that I could hopefully make it back to my car before the lightening got too close. There was a threat of rain the whole morning it wasn't until after the race started that the sun actually came out for a while. Nascar does the best they can by trying to judge what Mother Nature has in store for us.

Yeah had it been that bad in Fontana I would have left way before 11PM on Sunday. But it was just raining, no lightning in the area. It's different when you have lightning, it isn't safe for anyone.

Plus they had only like 15 laps to go, why waste the fan's time. We hadn't even got in like 30 laps at Fontana before it started raining again.
