Rain postpones NASCAR race at The GlenUPDATE A reader adds, If NASCAR has the greatest drivers in the world...so great in fact that open wheel drivers that come to NASCAR can't keep up...then why can’t they run in the rain?
Do NASCAR drivers have restrictions on their state issued driver's license that prohibits them from operating a vehicle in adverse weather conditions? Maybe they should.
Put the frikkin rain tires on the cars and run. It's an enclosed car for Pete sake.
What they are afraid of is that Boris Said will dominate the race, followed by Montoya, Allmendinger, Ambrose, Papis, Carpentier, Robby Gordon, Scott Speed, Tony Ave, Ron Fellows and Brian Simo will comprise the entire top 11 and their precious NASCAR stars will be exposed for the hacks they are.
Forgive me, you would likely see Kyle Busch and maybe Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon in there.
Not to mention that Montoya has been on a bit of a run lately, and is already favorite for any of the road races. Seeing as his team did the testing for the rain tires, that puts him at an advantage to everyone else. Lord knows, NASCAR would not want to be giving anyone an advantage, because they just don’t do that in their integrity-pure series.
But Boris would be a solid bet for the win in the rain. That guy has to be one of the best rain drivers I have ever seen in a tin-top car. I bet it wouldn’t even be close, and it would not shock me if he lapped the entire field. Todd Morrison
08/09/09 For the second consecutive week rain has forced the postponement of the NASCAR Sprint Cup race because unlike open wheel cars, NASCAR doesn't run in the rain on road courses - is it because their drivers are not good enough? Pretty lame if you ask us. The Heluva Good! at The Glen has been rescheduled for noon ET Monday.
