I am co-host of the syndicated radio show: ON PIT ROW. Over ten years on the air and three on the net; see what can happen when I don't let the facts get in the way of my opinions.August 6, 2008 6:02 am UTC 1 Comment
NASCAR told the Nationwide Series owners that the tour stop at Montreal would go on “rain or shine”.
And rain it did. Teams were given three minutes to change over from dry setups to wets. Unfortunately it was almost an hour before the cars returned to the track after installing tail lights, defrosters, wipers and six year old Goodyear rain tires.
We asked Boris Said on last nights ON PIT ROW what he thought of the wet racing. This is a guy that has raced in all kinds of weather conditions in all kinds of cars. He said that it was no big deal until the rain became so intense that it began to pool on the race track, causing some real hydroplaning problems.
This brings us to this week’s BUZZ ON PIT ROW:
Now that NASCAR has had the debut of its wet weather program at Montreal, should they continue to race in the rain at all road courses in all divisions including Cup?
