Mother Nature is expected to play nice this weekend at Martinsville Speedway. The only weather concern we have is for possible scattered rain showers and isolated storms Saturday. Weather WILL NOT be a factor for Sunday's Sprint Cup race.
Weak storm system will push through the Ohio Valley dragging a cold front across western Virginia on Saturday. This could result in a few scattered showers or isolated storms during the morning and possibly the afternoon. The threat is low but because there is no way to know where a storm or shower may pop up, it could only take one to delay or threaten any of the days activities.
Sunday's Sprint Cup race is much better. High pressure builds in behind the cold front giving way to mostly sunny skies, light winds and high temperatures in the low 70s.
