Jeff Gordon talked about mid-week racing, so I figured it was time for an episode of "I wrote a story about that"
Mid-week racing is a common thing, in the summer the Teen Series run a few races in the summer. the Red Bull 24 starts on Tuesday and ends on Wednesday, although it's starting to fall on the vernal equinox, the race starts in the Winter but ends in the spring. the Haloween race for both the Wrangler Teen Series and the Top Division occur on haloween, the race after was always a dirt race, so there were very common cases of the Haloween race being ran on Thursday and that same Saturday they were running the Dirt race
the 4th of July race occurs on the 4th of July every year, they attempt to run it early in the day so that when the TV networks sign out the viewers can take off and go do family stuff
im sure there are other examples, I just cant think of them off-hand
don't expect regular updates on the "I wrote a story about that" but next week will be Episode 2: Dirt Racing
