NASCAR 2012 Weather Forecast At Bristol Motor Speedway: More Dry Time Than Wet

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, though many more could miss the track than hit it.

The best chance for widespread scattered showers and storms will be Saturday afternoon when we get into the heat of the day. The most likely time would be from 2-8 p.m. EDT. Bristol has lights, so there's plenty of time to get the Nationwide Series race in today.

Sunday's forecast is a little better, though 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.
