Atlanta is in the target area for rainy weather during the February 28-March 1 NASCAR weekend, and temperatures will be well below normal.
Friday evening Cup qualifying will be rain-free, as will the Xfinity and Truck races on Saturday. However, a front will move through the area Friday evening, bringing rain overnight/early morning hours. Conditions will be very windy, adding to the chill of the already below average temperatures.
Sunday’s Cup race has a greater probability for rain delays as it doesn’t take much precipitation to red flag a race, and an early checkered flag is possible. But heavy rain should hold off until after the scheduled end of the race. Windy conditions will prevail as another front moves into the area. Atlanta will be wet on Monday
