Rain Delay Becomes Race Cancelled

Posted by on 26 February 2012

For most of the winter, we look forward to the beginning of race season.  We’re true NASCAR fans!!  Winter isn’t totally miserable because we do have the Green Bay Packers and they’re the ultimate!!  However, racing is a pure adrenaline rush and there’s so much hype leading up to opening day.

Now granted, we have had the Bud Shootout and the Gatorade Duals, but it’s still not the main event.  It’s not opening day of racing season!! 

For the first time in history, the Daytona 500 was cancelled postponed!!  It started as a rain delay and looked like the skies might clear.  As the hours went on, it didn’t look so good.  The dryers even made it out on the track when the skies opened up again.  Had it stayed clear, we could have had a night race because Daytona is equipped, but it just wasn’t meant to be.

With all the wild rides and excitement of the events leading up to today, the truck race and the Nationwide race, I can’t help but feel today was cancelled postponed for a reason.  Jeff Gordon took a wild ride at the Shootout.  There’s been crazy wrecks all weekend in the other racing events.  Today just had to be a way of God looking out for these race car drivers.  I know many will disagree with me, but I believe everything happens for a reason.  It just wasn’t meant to be today.

We should have a pretty fun and exciting Monday though!!  (Alright, so it’s not cancelled….it’s postponed.)  Let’s go racing boys….and let’s WIN Jr!!

    My husband and friends were so upset that the race was rained out! A couple that we’re very close to had a group over to their home for the race—drinks, delicious food—the whole nine yards. So you can imagine our disappointment when the rain just kept pouring in Daytona. But we still had a wonderful time with our friends, so it wasn’t all a bummer!
