2018 NASCAR at Daytona: Daytona 500 race day weather

New, comment

Does sunshine, warmth, and blue skies sound good to start the NASCAR season?

Blue skies, sunshine and a few clouds for NASCAR’s biggest race

If there is one thing NASCAR fans want for the start of the season it’s nice weather for the biggest race of the year: the Daytona 500. It is the 60th running of “The Great American Race” and weather couldn’t be better. Blue skies, sunshine, a few clouds and pleasantly warm temperatures in the mid-70s.

The odds of racing the 60th Daytona 500 is 100 percent. Just enjoy the race, and here’s to an outstanding 2018 season.
