Bad weather, no problem

SEBRING INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY - There's a considerable chance of rain today, but it won't dissuade any fans who are intent on reaching the race track.

The press box is buzzing and the track is busy with support series testing, which will be going on all day and into the evening. Out on the midway, campers are slowly beginning to the claim their territory - the prime seating spots are as close to the fences as possible. I don't envy any of the drivers trying to back them into the spot.

Pizza and burger shacks have been busy this morning, too. And the question on everyone's minds: will there be enough porta potties?
