The NASCAR Pennsylvania 400 at Pocono is set to go off on time!  (As of right now)

With the weather cooperating for now, it’s looking like the rain delayed Pennsylvania 400 will start at 11 am today.

I don’t know about you, but I like Monday races.  Don’t tell the bosses, but it gives me a little break from the Monday morning routine.  Makes Monday’s just a little bit more bearable.  With that said, it’s just about an hour from race time.  There are still storms in the area, so  get up front quick Jimmie, just in case they call it halfway through!
