I watched it, and my impression was that it was just a practice or exhibition race. They had the qualifying races this afternoon, and the actual race starts at 8pm Central. There should be more spectators tonight.
And a half time show? Some rapper being interviewed by one of the best looking women in America and he was in a different world. Watching the HT show and it's about the closest thing to nothing I've seen in a while. Was this a joke?
