    Wet Weather Control

    Great control of the cars. And NASCAR claims they have the best drivers but they park the cars if more than 3 sprinkles fall.

    Ron,

    Great post ... these guys have big ones and I have a lot of respect for the rally drivers as well as the 12 hour and 24 hour race drivers who keep on going in conditions which would stop all the NASCAR types.

    Long time ago when the CART Indy cars raced at Portland it was raining. I know, rain in the FSH, but anyway, that was when Mario, Emmerson and some of the other greats of that time were still racing.

    It was amazing to watch them in the rain. The car control was something to behold. And then you had Dale Coyne with his small block Chevy car and he could not even go down the front straight without spinning out.

    I remember a few years ago when CRAPCAR said they would race in the rain on a road course. Goodyear developed rain tires for them and one time at Watkins Glen it was raining, but then they said there was too much rain so they could not race. To my knowledge they have never raced in the rain.
