Probably the scariest crash I've ever seen at the end of maybe the best  race I've ever seen. I didn't have action on it, unbelievable all the drivers are ok.

Only showing the replay once makes me believe it's multiple serious injuries at best.

It's scattered storms. 60% chance of storms during the day, but only 30% at night. They should be able to get it in.

Depends which forecast you look at I guess. Hope that's right. New-track drying system said to cut time down by 80% if needed.

The guy the tire landed on fucked up bad. CNN has this crazy video from the guy sitting next to him and then everyone starts screaming and yelling for medics and you can see the tire laying on his chair. That tire has to be 200 degrees or so. Man that looked bad :/
