I drive my car in the rain and the snow all the time. It works just fine, I’ve never had an issue. When I get up at 7:00 AM to go to work (yea I have a job, what of it?) and see rain outside my window, I’ve never once received a call notifying me that work has been delayed or cancelled. Sure I wish that would happen, I’m not a crazy person, but it doesn’t. It has never happened, and it never will.
So you must understand my confusion when NASCAR stops a race every fifteen minutes because of some rain drops. If I can drive despite torrential downpour, then they can drive in the rain too.
“But they’re racing at 200 mph, on a slick surface!”
I. Don’t. Care. Make some adjustments. Slow down a little if you need to. Put on some different tires. I know damn well those pit crews could have four rain or snow tires on a car in about thirty seconds.
Seriously, just slap on some weather appropriate tires and slow down a little bit, but keep that shit going. My car cost me like $15,000 (sick brag), and I can race that bitch in the rain. I bet a NASCAR spoiler costs more money than my entire car. Some water should not be the downfall of a colossal event like the Daytona 500. The President was there for God’s sake. A little hydrogen and oxygen should not stop these space ships they’re racing.
Maybe they should bring an extra car in case of rain. A “rain car” is you will. Bring a rain Jeep for I care, just keep the action going. We have the technology.
Consider this my NASCAR manifesto. I refuse to stand ideally by while water shuts down the great American race. It’s time to make some changes.
