Air Titans are already busily working on the track at Texas Motor Speedway this morning in preparation for the day's racing.
The forecast for the Duck Commander 500 today looks to be cloudy and cool, but local meteorologists are optimistic that the race can be completed before another round of showers begins.
According to Kristi King of NASCAR Integrated Marketing Communications, gates and the Sprint Cup garage open at 9:00 am Central Time, with the command to start engines coming at 11:01 am CT and the green flag flying at 11:08 am. CT. There will be no pre-race activities, including driver introductions, just Tony Stewart and Brad Keselowski leading the field to green.
The race will broadcast live on FOX and PRN Radio starting at 11:00 am CT.
Those fans able to return to the track will use the same tickets and sit in the same seats as on Sunday. Additional tickets can be bought at the gate.
Fans who can't make it back have a full year to use the ticket at any of the other races at TMS>
The race was called Sunday evening after weepers kept the armada of Air Titans (both versions) and jet dryers from getting the track dry enough for racing. North Texas, like much of the country, experienced a winter with more than the usual number of ice storms and snow that likely affected the racing surface.
In addition, the sky just would not stop crying. Intermittent showers kept the roads slick and made the egress from the track soggy.
Unfortunately, Skirts and Scuffs reps will be unable to bring you updates from the track today but we hope you enjoyed the coverage we were able to provide.
