NASCAR drivers and fans are converging on Talladega Superspeedway, Ala., this weekend, and the weather is interfering with festivities.
The same storm system responsible for the recent historic snowfall across the Plains and Upper Midwest is making for a wet weekend at Talladega Superspeedway.
Rain on Saturday forced officials to delay the Nationwide Series' Aaron's 312 Race and cancel the qualifying for today's Sprint Cup Series' Aaron's 499 Race.
It was also a chilly day for NASCAR drivers and fans with Saturday's temperatures only reaching the 50-degree mark due to the rain and accompanying clouds. Highs in the upper 70s are more typical this time of year at Talladega.
Despite the departure of Saturday's rain, dry weather for the Sprint Cup Series will not follow today. A couple of showers and thunderstorms will instead return to Talladega as the day progresses.
The good news is that today will not be a washout with the showers and thunderstorms being significantly spottier in nature than Saturday's rain. However, any shower or thunderstorm crossing Talladega Superspeedway this afternoon could mean another delay for NASCAR drivers and fans.
Clouds will also win out over sunshine today, holding temperatures to a cool 59 degrees.
