Once again, NASCAR is feeling the curse, or maybe blessing of rain, this time at the Auto Club Speedway in California. It's a little past half way, and there's been some racing tonight, but not a great deal. I suppose that's about par for the course at Fontana.
Now 3 of the Hendrick cars appear to have engine problems at the same time, so or at least 2 of them. Fox TV is reporting that the 88 of Earnhardt Jr. and the 5 of Martin appears to be down a cylinder. It appears that the 48 of Johnson is jumping out of gear. I wonder what's going through Jeff Gordon's mind right now?
My biggest complaint with the California races is purely selfish. I live on the east coast, so the race didn't even start here until sometime around 7:00 pm, local time. I wouldn't mind it so much on a Saturday night, but it's Sunday, and I've got things to do tomorrow, all of which involve paying the bills. Life was so much simpler when it was Rockingham in February, instead of Fontana. But like I said, it's probably selfish on my part. I hope the west coast fans enjoy the race! I really do.
I'm still wishing that the race was at Rockingham though.
