11:30 really?

I guess I need to vent but I think Nascar better get more realistic in its race times. For those of us who don't work anymore at a real paying job, so be it. I taped it just in case I fell I asleep which I did. I have a son who stayed up and texted me after the race saying I will now have to kill a few hours before going into work at 6:30....never went to bed. Bad choice I know.

Those folks who had to drive home after the race, how tired were they? Driving tired puts a lot of people at risk for accidents.

What about the drivers? Staying up all that time and still racing after 2+ in the morning? More chance for errors during the race. And don't get me started about this form of racing. Is Nascar waiting for someone to get killed again before making some changes? And I am not just talking about the drivers but the fans too.

It is no wonder we have less fans in the stands.

Am I missing something or am I just getting old.

Re: 11:30 really?

it just shows you how nascar will do anything for the dollar, it finished around 3am, they dont care about the fans, if they truly did they would have run the race on saturday, or at best sunday during the day. since when has nascar allowed someone else dictate when races start, i thought it was bad a couple years back when every race started no earlier then 3pm est. i am sure they will find a way to top this....

We went to bed. Just got through watching the replay on NBCSN.

Re: 11:30 really?

I had a spare vacation day, so I planned in advance to take it today (Monday). I NEVER dreamed they would start the race that late & it would end at 3 am. I realize they want to get it in on the scheduled day, but there is the issue....the scheduled day... It used to be Sat night & the Nationwide ran on Fri night. Bad call for this year's schedule by NASCAR.

Re: 11:30 really?

This was a deal already in place NBC, wanted the race broadcast on Sunday nite, a one time deal.Seems NBCs reasoning was tht peopke would be home Sunday evening, after a Saturday of celebrating the 4th. I think tht was their end of reasonung. :-(

doesnt matter if this was a one time thing, France doesnt care about the fans, its about making a dollar, it set a president to have it happen again
