The weather delay for the Auto Trader EchoPark 500 at Texas Motor Speedway has now exceeded 2 hours.
NASCAR’s inclement weather policy needs to be revised whether the track has noise restrictions or not.
Fans won’t watch or stay at the track. Most new or uninformed fans will lose interest quickly. Dedicated fans might not watch the resumption of the event either.
A shortened schedule, possibly ending in the second or third weekend in September, like IndyCar, will give the officials flexibility to reschedule races until November 14 when needed.
