Today’s Xfinity and Cup Practice & Qualifying sessions were cancelled due to rainy and snowy conditions. Fox’s weather forecast at least a 70 percent chance of rain the remainder of Saturday and a 40 percent chance of rain Sunday with temperatures in the mid-40s.
While teams are waiting to see if there’s a window of opportunity for cars to get on track for tonight’s Xfinity race, they are taking in the sights of the 2-mile track for the final time under snowfall.
What You Need To Know:
- Cup and Xfinity starting lineups will be set per NASCAR Rule Book due to cancellations on Saturday.
- The track is expected to take at least 3 hours to dry, without dealing with the Weepers – water seeping through gaps in the racing surface – because of the old racing surface.
- If the weather effects the entire weekend, the races will get pushed back to mid-day on Monday Feb. 27th.
UPDATE: Cars are being brought back down pit road but told to stay close!
UPDATE: Green Flag will fly for the Xfinity Series @ 6:07pm
