Although there are scattered showers in the forecast this weekend for Bristol Motor Speedway, the majority of the time should be dry and rain free. This doesn’t mean a shower won’t threaten and or even hit the track, it just means because the showers and storms will be scattered across the area, many could miss the track than hit it. 

Best chance for widespread scattered showers and storms will be Saturday afternoon when we get into the heating of the day. Best time would be from 2 p.m. EDT until 8 p.m. EDT in the evening. Bristol has lights, but I don’t know if NASCAR would move the Nationwide race to Saturday night if showers were to delay or postpone. I guess it is always an option. 

Sunday’s forecast is a little better, there’s still the possibility of some scattered showers developing in the afternoon but they don’t look to be as widespread as Saturday. 

Both Saturday and Sunday will feature partly sunny skies, and very warm temperatures for mid March. High temperatures in the afternoon will be in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.
