The Art of Racing 7-28
Brickyard chaotic

At the conclusion of the Brickyard 400, I overheard some reporters saying the race was one of the best they ever saw at Indy. I guess they like the first 110 laps of the scheduled 166 being dominated by two drivers, no on-track passes for the lead, except Kyle Busch getting around Ryan Blaney during the second stage, a record for cautions with 14, five of them coming in the last 15 laps, a nearly two-hour rain delay, and NASCAR officials determining when to throw yellow or red flags because of pending darkness.Starting races at 3 p.m. ET in the summer, at tracks without lights, is stupid. No matter how ridiculous it turns out, NASCAR continues to let the TV networks dictate its policy.
