Seriously- what's with the pot hole issues? I'm not much of a Nascar fan, but I'm in a Nascar pool this year for the first time so this is really the first time I've paid much attention. Are track malfuncitions normal? I feel like this is the equivelant of taking a 30 minute time-out in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl to re-sod the 10 yard line.
Good thing the City of Ames isn't in charge- it may be June before they run the last lap!
Not a normal issue......only happened a couple times in the ten years I've been watching. But if they didn't stop to fix it, would be a real problem.
Thanks. I can imagine if it's not taken care of right away it could become a real issue. This isn't helping my efforts to get into Nascar this year though!
Just an FYI....in my opinion, these super-speedway races(Daytona and Talladega) aren't usually the most exciting except for the wrecks. Usually takes someone to push you to be able to pass due to restrictor plates. Mile and half tracks and short tracks typically will tell you more about the drivers ability and how good of a car they have.
FOX must of paid big bucks to NASCAR to have track issues and keep viewers tune until this time tonite as FOX as to compete with NBC
Just saw Clint Bowyer say that he didn't mind the pothole problem, and added "Daytona, PLEASE don't repave the track because of this. Leave the track as it is."
I've also heard Carl Edwards talk about being "irritated" by the perfectly smooth, immaculate asphalt tracks.
Wonder why drivers think like this? Any insight?
