The NASCAR Cup Series traveled to Circuit of the Americas for the first time ever on Sunday afternoon (May 23) for the Echopark Grand Prix. The problem for the most popular stock car series in America is that the NASCAR COTA races came paired with a rainstorm that never seemed to let up all weekend.
After COTA turned into a soggy, wet mess down in Austin, Texas were future NASCAR races at the venue washed out for good? Frontstretch’s Bryan Nolen and Adam Cheek discuss whether officials made the right decision to hold the NASCAR COTA races this weekend considering the forecast. Plus, they take a closer look at how Chase Elliott made his way to the front to capture his fifth win in the last six road course races in the Cup Series.
