The subject line says it all. My question is this: If they got lights at
the track, and they can, essentially, "wait all night" to get the race in,
whyohwhyohWHY did they call it? I wasn't tuned to the four-letter network
for the announcement, so I don't know how long they waited. Wonder if this
was a capitulation to the fact that if they kept waiting, ESPN wouldn't
show the end of the race? OR did they just want to keep from having a
repeat of what happened last year at the night race (you DO remember how
TL's car looked going into victory lane, right?).
Anyways, I have a suggestion this week, Mark - the race only went what,
360 out of 500 laps? Thus, give ol' Gordo only 0.72 points (or whatever)
for winning the shortened race. Shouldn't give the boy credit for winning
a *whole* race, now, should we? ;)
