Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard - Racing or Rain?
SPEEDWAY, IN - RIS - The question of the day is "Will we be able to race today?" The key factor to racing today will be the weather. The sky is currently overcast with a continuous, slight drizzle of rain. The weather models provide a window of opportunity in the early afternoon, which explains why NASCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway moved the start time up to 1:00 pm Eastern time. A key indicator of having the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard today will be seeing the dryer trucks out on the 2.5 mile racetrack in preparation for the race. And the dryer trucks are now on the track!
