I can't wait for the restart. NASCAR won't race in the rain, but jet fuel on the track... No problem!

Agreed, I saw a shot of the track. It looks pretty burnt up, as well as being soaked with kerosene. Gasoline isn't too bad on asphalt, but kerosene eats asphalt very quickly.

1 am...

I watched the whole thing, and since i am a Montoya fan..... well you know how i feel... i was routing for Danica... just because.. shame she got into that with johnson..

I will say i think that Montoya has been able to hit every wall and almost all the cars possibe... He can know check off emergency equiptment off of his bucket list.. I here that next race he is going to aim for the concession carts..

Anyone know how they fixed the track? I know they have used Bondo before, just wondering what they used this time. The track looked pretty bad.

Little or no damage done to the track, Tide did most of the clean up.

They definately made the right choice of airing this primetime like they did, thanks to more rain.

Turned out to be one Hell of a race, got to watch the whole thing even though I regreted it having to be up at 430 for work on Tuesday
