Rain showers are trying to develop this afternoon around Kentucky Speedway. As of 2:30 p.m. EDT there was no immediate threat from rain but isolated showers and storms were getting closer to the track. In fact, since about 1 p.m. EDT showers have been forming within 10-20 miles of the track.
The race has past halfway so it is official and now we continue to monitor the risk of a slow moving shower hitting the track later this afternoon towards the end of the race. If a shower would form and move over the track it would cause a long delay in my opinion. These storms are moving very slow (around 10 mph) and dumping tons of rain.
