    Race now delayed until 7pm eastern on your local Fox station. Another rain delay. For those in the Cleveland DMA due to the shootings at Chardon High School the race MAY be carried on 8.2 and not the main Fox channel.

    FWIW, the Guide shows it's on now, (Ch. 2 in N Cal.), [not HD!]. They—The Foxes—are running instead some low rent "news" broadcast. Regular programming is shown for 4 PM, PST. Dr. Oz I believe.

    Wonder if it will get into the stream? A Guide flush could be interesting.....

    My guide data updated around 11am to show the 12pm attempt. My guess is the 7pm broadcast will be in the guide around 5:30 or so.

    Can you give a bit of info- or educated guess- as to when Guide updates are done? Esp. the ones that handle major changes such as the Daytona one?

    Yes, that was reported a few posts ago, and for EST.

    So, what's it look like there now??

    Just an opinion on my part but I'm guessing they can not make an update to the event until the current event in the guide has completed (5:30EST). I would say look for any update to occur around 6pm..

    For those who have set-up NASCAR to record "First Run" only, I'd recommend keeping an eye out as your DVR may not record it. I noticed that noon start time was not set up record. When i checked history, it said something about being recorded previously.

    It's clear up there now and nothing seems to be headed that way. They'll get it in tonight.

    Guide updates are nearly constant. It all depends on how fast your local FOX affiliate can get the info out.

    My guide has "NASCAR Racing" on FOX at 7pm to 12:30am already.

    They can make a guide update any time they want. As of 4pm now I have NASCAR Racing from 7pm to 12:30am on FOX.

    This is correct because technically the "showing" was already done. Also since this is not showing as first run you can't set the live padding unless you go into the "episode" settings.

    I've got it now, precisely 2:38:39 PM PST on Monday, February 27, 2012, but I was out for last several hours, so dunno how recently it updated.

    Updates from any provider need to go through the Tribune, no?
