When I was growing up, I barely made it home from church in time to catch the start of the 500. Now the stupid thing starts 3.5 hours later. They would have gotten the whole race in if they had started at the "traditional" time. They should schedule it at 1PM, and if it does rain during the day, you still have the evening hours to get it in. NASCAR pisses me off more and more each year, bring on the 410s!!
Precisely, it's all about the dollar anymore!! The race should start no later than 1:00 p.m. I'll never forget the pre-race show a couple of years ago, Metallica played which was GREAT, but the darn race didn't start until at least 2:30 p.m. What a joke, I'd prefer if Metallica played at noon and the race started at 1:00 p.m.!!
Was thrilled Kenseth won although I would have rather seen him win it the way you should. Disappointed Martin didn't win though too!!
Also its about the west coast time difference but screw them. I remember the Super Bowl kicking off at 1PM, World series games in the afternoon
