Someone somewhere decided that it would be a fantastic idea to run the NASCAR Nationwide race on Friday the 13th under the lights at Texas Motor Speedway. What could possibly go wrong?
Did anyone bet on the lights?
The lights in Turn 3 tried to be the star of the show tonight at Texas Motor Speedway. We had a caution earlier in the race because those lights went out. Track officials felt that the lights were overheating. So, what was their solution? Send a track worker over to the panel to waive some cardboard as fan to cool it off.
Millions of dollars in technology and we use an old cardboard box. I cannot make this stuff up. Redneck ingenuity at its finest, folks.
