If you bought a Saturday NASCAR ticket, there’s a glimmer of hope.

It’s funny to watch these huge NASCAR blow-dryers. They’re being towed around the track on the back of pickup trucks going about 5 mph. It rained lightly for about half an hour, finished not too long ago, and now begins the tedious process of drying the track in the hope that a race can be held sometime in the next four and a half hours.

There’s actually still a spattering of fans in the grandstands, most of them leaning over the front-row railing watching the blow dryers. Proof that when NASCAR’s in town, folks will watch anything driving counter-clockwise around a paved track.

Or, hopefully, proof that Southern California’s racing fan base has a better sense of the weather forecast than I do.
