Mother nature dominated the day at Texas Motor Speedway. From the moment the garage opened until the moment the NASCAR Nationwide race was called, rain was falling in some capacity. This has forced NASCAR to postpone the Nationwide O’Reilly 300 to Sunday evening at 9 p.m. eastern time.
The Nationwide race will commence after the conclusion of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ Samsung Mobile 500.
However rain is in the forecast for tomorrow as well, so who knows exactly what is going to happen just yet. Cross your fingers, and we here at RubbingsRacing.com will keep you up-to-date tomorrow. Brian Neudorff, who is a meteorologist for WROC-TV in Rochester, NY was kind enough to give me a little bit of a prediction or forecast for tomorrow.
“The later we go into Sunday the better we should be. This system that brought the rain Saturday will move North-North East tonight,” Neurdorff says, “I see some showers in the morning, but most watching this afternoon. I feel we have a good shot at getting the races in. Just a few showers (mostly scattered & isolated) in the afternoon drying later towards evening.”
Brian Neudorff is usually spot on with his forecasts. So hopefully tomorrow his prediction will come true (With some spaces between the showers), and we may actually see race cars on the track. To follow Neudorff’s weekly NASCAR weather updates visit http://www.wx-man.com/NASCAR.
Oh and for those who will be at the track, who would like to meet me, I will be participating in the Jeff Gluck tweet-up tomorrow morning. It’s mainly for people who follow us on twitter, so if you aren’t on Twitter yet get on there and follow up. You can get an overwhelming amount of information quickly through our tweets. Trust me, if you are a NASCAR fan you need to be on Twitter. Anyway the Tweet-up will be located at gate six directly behind the coca-cola pitstop challenge and it will take place at 11 am (Central Time).
