Coca-Cola 600 Seasons

seeks forecast Cool temperatures and rain throughout the weekend, which will make schedulers rub their temples at the speedway. In addition to the Cup cars, the track will feature practice, qualifying and races for the ARCA Menards, Craftsman Trucks and Xfinity Series. With Monday being a federal holiday, NASCAR may be inclined to push the Cup race back more quickly rather than waiting for weather to clear late on Sunday.
