NASCAR Darlington Raceway Weather Forecast 2012: Skies Clear For Southern 500

As NASCAR drivers tackle the track that's "Too Tough To Tame" at Darlington Raceway, they won't be worrying about Mother Nature.

After weeks of dodging rain drops, high winds and chilly temperatures, there's finally a race weekend where the attention is on the track and not the radar or the sky.

High pressure will build in over the Carolinas for Friday and Saturday. There will be plenty of sunshine both days and temperatures will be very pleasant ranging from the upper 70s to low 80s. Humidity levels will also be low, so it will feel very comfortable as well. Winds will also remain generally light between 3-8 mph.

Enjoy a quiet weather weekend. NASCAR has definitely earned it.
