Showers have been forming through central Tennessee this afternoon. It looks like they should be able to get Sprint Cup qualifying in, but the K&N Pro Series East race later this evening could be dealing with some rain.

Forecast overall is relatively unchanged. There will be dry time along with the threat of scattered showers and storms in the afternoon. The best chance for rain appears to be Saturday. Similar to what we saw today but as you may have noticed rain was NOT a factor in practice or qualifying. In the afternoon on Saturday, scattered showers and storms are expected to form, the question is when and where. If they form all around Bristol Motor Speedway and don’t hit the track then that is a win for NASCAR. Just keep in mind it only takes one lone shower or storm to move over the track to cause problems and delays.

For Sunday, the forecast is a little better. Isolated and scattered showers or storms are still possible in the afternoon. I will need to keep an eye on the radar through out the race but I feel like NASCAR should be able to get the Food City 500 in on Sunday.
