SUNDAY, MARCH 27: The Nationwide Climate Service has extra dangerous information for Bristol:
Showers and thunderstorms earlier than midday, then showers doubtless. A few of the storms could possibly be extreme. Patchy fog between 10am and 11am. Excessive close to 66. Southwest wind 10 to fifteen mph, with gusts as excessive as 25 mph. Probability of precipitation is 90%. New precipitation quantities between 1 and a pair of inches potential. Sunday Night time: A 30 % probability of showers, primarily earlier than 7pm. Partly cloudy, with a low round 34. Northwest wind 10 to fifteen mph, with gusts as excessive as 20 mph.
The inexperienced flag for the Cup Collection race is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET and the inexperienced flag for the rescheduled Truck Collection race is about for roughly 9 p.m. ET.

The radar painted a dismal image after the vans have been ordered off the monitor.
NASCAR canceled the warmth races and postponed the truck principal at 6 p.m. ET.
