Coke 600 2012 Weekend Schedule And Weather Forecast For Charlotte Motor Speedway

NASCAR continues to get spoiled by another rain-free weekend, as we stay at Charlotte Motor Speedway for NASCAR's longest race, the Coca-Cola 600.

Not only will it be mostly dry, but it will once again be hot. High pressure is going to dominate the eastern third of the United States this weekend. This will provide lots of sunshine, highs reaching the upper 80s to near 90, and it will be humid.

The only areas of concern I have are the chance of isolated showers and storms on Thursday afternoon for practice and Sprint Cup Series qualifying. The good news is any activity that may form would be very hit or miss and I expect more miss than hit.

Another small threat of isolated storms occurs Saturday afternoon and evening for the final Sprint Cup practice and the Nationwide race. Just like today the threat is very small and the activity will be more miss than hit.
