Rain of any kind is never ever an excellent sign for racing, as NASCAR drivers generally utilize slicker tires that have a hard time to acquire traction, triggering them to move whenever rain falls on the track. If it starts to rain throughout a race, the warning will increase and the race will be postponed up until the rain stops and the track can be dried. If rain continues, which appears not likely on Sunday provided the present projections, races can be postponed for hours and even held off to the next day.
