The Daytona 500?!

I missed Speed Week for the Olympics and a bunch of Norwegians in fancy pants?!  I must be a cheese eating, wine swilling, Ivory Tower, coast dwelling in-tee-lectual.  I’m probably homoqueeracle too.

Well, it’s like the first robin of Spring I guess.  I couldn’t care less but it kicks off at 1:30 pm so grab your Buds (and no, I don’t mean your friends most of whom I hope have the good sense to miss this mash of alcohol, testosterone, and gasoline) and join in the spectacle that is Turn Left Bumper Cars.

Make sure you note the flaming chunks of twisted metal below.

    At one point severe weather forced the evacuation of the stands.

    Severe weather has forced the delay of the Daytona 500 after 38 laps Sunday.

    Rain began to fall at Daytona International Speedway around 2:22 p.m. ET forcing NASCAR officials to red flag the race. A tornado warning in the area led track officials to evacuate the grandstand with fans taking shelter.

    A break in the weather around 4:30 p.m. allowed fans to return to the stands and track officials to send out dryers to try and get the speedway ready for racing, however there is no official word on the status of the race. It takes 90 minutes to properly dry the race track. I

    It’s very likely that the race will be run at night – either with a late start on Sunday or pushing the race to Monday night for television and fan considerations.
