Wednesday night was a full night at North Wilkesboro Speedway with the CARS Tour and ASA taking the track before NASCAR comes in for the weekend. During the races, Jordan Anderson Racing engineer Brockton Packard took notice of the interesting location of the North Wilkesboro pit wall, and how tantalizingly close the cars came to hitting the end of the wall. Fans on social media were quite interested in this, and they also wanted a camera put there by Fox as Packard suggested
- Packard noticed this while watching the preliminary events at North Wilkesboro Speedway. He even suggested that Fox put a camera focused and/or on that pit wall to see what the cars will do that day.
- This comes amidst more and more discoveries fans are making about the uniqueness that North Wilkesboro Speedway provides. With it being the track that it is, having these little quirks is not necessarily a bad thing.
- Fans on social media said they would love to see a camera there. While others pointed out potential dangers of the pit wall being where it is.
In the Stands
A good question indeed Chris Barnes.
No one is denying that this would be a beautiful shot.
We will see how the tweet ages this weekend.
We’re holding you to this Travis.
More blaming Chastain.
I thought we wanted less sponsored content on Fox broadcasts? That said, a smart marketing idea.
I’m puckered just looking at this image.
Plausible in a very scary way.
I remember that old Gopher cam. Also, let’s hope they don’t overuse it.
On Your Screen
It’s maybe not quite that extreme, but hopefully that is not what is repeated this weekend.
S1apSh0es points out that this scenario is similar to the pit wall at Greenville-Pickens Speedway.
In all likelihood, the Cup drivers will find their way around this pit wall this weekend. Regardless, it’s not as crazy as the days when North Wilkesboro had no pit wall.
This weekend is definitely an upgrade over that. Hopefully it does not prove to be disastrous this weekend.
