If it’s the weekend, and there’s a Sprint Cup race, it must mean rain. The Daytona 500. Coca-Cola 600. New Hampshire. Pocono. All affected by rain. The start time for today’s race at Watkins Glen has been pushed back indefinitely while lightning strikes around the track and clouds enter the area. The cars are covered. The drivers are under cover. And ESPN is filling … filling … filling.
