NASCAR at Martinsville 2013 weekend weather forecast

With nice sunny weather expected at Martinsville Speedway this weekend, how will cold fall temperatures effect the fans and the racing this weekend.

Great weather is expected this weekend at Martinsville Speedway for the NASCAR Camping World Truck series and Sprint Cup Series races. There will be plenty of sunshine this weekend across southern Virginia but the temperatures will be very chilly.

Temperatures the rest of this afternoon will remain chilly in the low 50s. Overnight, for those camping out at Martinsville Speedway I hope you brought something warm because morning lows Saturday morning will drop down into the mid 20s.

It is only slightly warmer on Saturday but with plenty of sunshine. Highs Saturday afternoon will reach the mid to upper 50s. Overnight temperatures Saturday into Sunday won't be nearly as cold but still very chilly with Sunday morning lows reaching the mid 30s. Sunday, for the Sprint Cup race, will remain sunny and cool but it will be the warmest day of he weekend with highs reaching the mid 60s.
