Q: What is now known as the NASCAR Pinty's Series used to be known as the CASCAR Super Series.  The CASCAR Super Series actually had contingences in place to race on road courses in the rain, but it was a bit different than what you saw the XFINITY Series do at Mid-Ohio earlier this year.  What did CASCAR Super Series teams do to prepare for wet races? 

Check back Monday for the answer, here in the Frontstretch Newsletter!

Tuesday's Answer:

Q:  In 1989, the World Championship infamously came down to contact in Japan at the Casio Triangle between McLaren teammates Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.  Had Senna's win been upheld (it wasn't), would he had been able to win the World Championship in Adelaide at the final race?

A: Yes.  Had Senna's win in Suzuka stood, he would have gone into the final race of the season with the chance to win the World Championship by winning the race.  The DQ holding up meant that Prost claimed the title in Suzuka.

However, the Grand Prix of Australia on the streets of Adelaide that year was held in a downpour.  Prost is well-known to have hated racing in the rain.  He chose to pull out of the race after the first lap.

Senna won the pole and ran away from the field in the treacherous conditions.  However, he retired from the race after running into the back of Martin Brundle's Brabham and shearing his left front wheel off.  Had the court challenge of the Suzuka DQ been won, that would have given the title to Prost.
