NASCAR at Darlington Raceway weekend weather forecast: Goodbye Hermine, hello sunshine

Weather will be much improved for the rest of the weekend at Darlington Raceway.

Now that the weekend is here at Darlington Raceway NASCAR can get back to focusing on racing and not a tropical storm, winds and torrential rain. Weather will be much improved Saturday compared to what Darlington Raceway endured on Friday. Mostly sunny skies are expected not only Saturday but also into Sunday which will also have sunny skies for the Bojangles' Southern 500.

Odds of racing the rest of the weekend are 100 percent.
