The NASCAR season officially begins today with the first points race of the big 3 series! Jason White, Elliot Sadler and Austin Dillion will lead the field to the green tonight for the NextEra Energy Resources 250. I don't know about you but I am ready for some racing. I know NASCAR has the shortest offseason of any major sport but that still feels too long for me. The green flag is expected to fly at 7:30 pm ET although it is currently raining and rain is in the forecast. Hopefully Mother Nature is a racing fan tonight!
UPDATE: The race has been postponed due to rain. It is scheduled to be run tomorrow at 6:30 pm ET
