Photo Finish NASCAR Race Started Its Five Overtime Sessions At Daytona With The Big One:

I have to admit: I have forgotten about every single race at Daytona Speedweeks, save for the Clash (which I almost forgot about, too). I tuned in for the final 13 laps of today’s race. I figured it was a 10-12 minute commitment. Nope. They wrecked. I gave up. Took my kids to the park to play. Got back in the truck, race still wasn’t over. Drove home (20 minutes), race still wasn’t over. Let the neighbor’s dog out for a potty break, checkered flag. Holy smokes. It took over an hour from 13 laps to go to checkered flag. I would’ve been so freaking done with racing if I were at the track. Talladeaga last fall was similar. The end just would not happen. As always, NASCAR needs to rethink how they do finishes at plate tracks. This method works at dirt tracks because the fields are small, there’s no pit stops, and no TV breaks. Adjustments must be made for the big show.
