    Unlike @Dylan i don’t get to get excited about my favourite driver doing well very often but LANDON CASSILL IS IN SECOND PLACE. Hopefully he gets a nose ahead of Kurt just after the restart and the monsoon begins.

    NBC says 95 got in it. Maybe not very bad, but he caught some damage. Lightning is in the area. This thing might get called short of 400 miles after all.

    If nascar has any decency they’ll score back to before they screwed up. So basically, congrats Justin Haley...

    I don't know much about Hayley, but if this result sticks, this'll probably be the most hilarious upset I've ever seen.

    Imagine the scenes if they call the race now.

    Ugh. Haley made the right call. If I was in a slower car like Cassill or him I would not have pitted until the pace car was literally pulling off the track. That’s what you have to do.

    Kurt I understand because he has a fast car and could’ve come from the back if they restarted, but the other guys had nothing to lose.

    Good on Haley I guess, but Cassill was the closest he’ll ever get...

    Atleast Byron gets the points

    So how will this work? Does this mean Hayley has a ticket to the playoffs? I thought he isn’t full time

    I think they just might wait for the storm cloud to pass the track. The radar showed that it would pass north of the track, and it was a small storm.

    If I had to guess, Hayley would still get credit for the win, but the playoff order would be decided by points.

    They’ll certainly wait for it to actually start precipitating on the track. They can’t call a race because they’re scared of lightning.

    He just gets the credit and a few pats on the back. Everything else goes to Byron since he was closest

    It’ll be the same as when Kyle Busch wins in Trucks or Xfinity, it’ll just be null and void for anyone else getting playoff eligibility.

    If there is lightning the helicopters won't fly and if the helicopters can't fly they won't race.

    He’ll just get 2nd place points, not a spot in the playoffs.

    This. I believe a few years ago, NASCAR made drivers or owners choose which series they wanted to accumulate points for. It was meant as a way for Monster Cup drivers to stop going to Nationwide so often & interfering with full time drivers in Nationwide trying to have a full series of points.

    Um, he would get first place points. The playoff spot would then go unclaimed.

    In unrelated talking, why the hell is NBC still showing the advert for the Coke Zero 400 happening yesterday? :boggled: Like, does the team in charge of ads not posses a calendar?

    I didn't see it, but my guess is they couldn't throw together a new one since the rescheduling was so sudden

    Fair enough. I'm watching the NBC Stream, and I've seen it at least once during each full commercial break.

    If it doesn't rain, how long do they have to wait before then can lift the red?

    Did I just see rain?

    Yup.

    Dammit.

    They have to wait 30 minutes from the most recent lightning strike in the 8 mile "safe area," which should be expiring very shortly.

    Edit: Aaaaaand, it's raining in turn 4...looks like a cell is developing right on top of the speedway.

    Edit 2: Harvick apparently had a random tire pop on pit road, and the 20(?) team is passing the time playing some football.

    This is going to restart. They're drying the track and the lightning is gone.

    Yep, looks like most of the rain has cleared out and moving west. Just gotta dry off 3 & 4.

    And out comes the football.

    Edit: cars are being uncovered.
