I wonder if they have any consideration for the inconvenience suffered by the fans who spent big money for the weekend in Daytona and didn't get to see the race they paid for.

@zoom, nobody runs on ovals in the rain. never have. sportscars only run portions of an oval (here in the States) so are set up completely differently that an 'oval-only' car. I am a huge nasscar hater but those whinging about this delay are talking out their asses. move along.

Yes its a pain in the ass for the fans, but if you are going to blame anyone blame the weather and that make believe thing called GOD, not nascars fault, they are doing the right thing, the SAFE thing, dont want another motorsport death. Anyone who wants the drivers to race in the rain and put safety last is just an asshole
