Better weather in the desert for NASCAR at Phoenix Raceway

NASCAR continues it's trek out west in the desert, and unlike Las Vegas, where dust storms and rain were an issue, we have great looking weather for Phoenix

NASCAR's west coast swing continues in the Desert Southwest at Phoenix Raceway. Unlike last weekend where winds, rain and even a dust storm caused problems weather this weekend will be very nice and calm.

Temperatures will be cooler than Friday with Saturday high temperatures in the low 70s. Sunday will  be nice and a touch warmer getting back into the upper 70s to near 80 and both days will have plenty of sunshine.
