If this trend of a rain-free race weekends continues, race fans may start to get spoiled. This is the second straight weekend when weather is not a problem.
Mostly sunny skies are expected during the day at Charlotte Motor Speedway with comfortable temperatures as the high reaches 78 degrees. Winds will be out of the north-northeast with a light breeze of 5 to 15 mph.
As evening sets in, the weather will remain fair and temperatures during the Sprint Showdown and All-Star race will range from the mid-70s at the start of the race to the mid-60s by the end.
Since NASCAR returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway for next weekend's Coca-Cola 600, so let's hope the weather remains the same.
