So with the rainfall fresh in mind, The NASCAR Insiders pose the obvious question: why not change Martinsville's date?
It's a good idea, one that's endorsed by track president Clay Campbell. Push the spring race a little further into, you know, the spring and reduce the possibility of bone-chilling rain.
Now, you'll never completely eliminate weather from the equation. Despite what the conspiracy theorists believe, NASCAR can't control the clouds. (Still, it's Jimmie Johnson's fault.) So with that in mind, why not reschedule Martinsville?
The problem comes in what races to place in those early-spring slots. Anything north of Atlanta has problems with weather, so maybe Homestead? Heck, I don't know. I'm here to pick apart NASCAR's problems, not solve them! Make your call in the comments below.
