FORECAST UPDATE #1: Thursday, October 27th at 9:50 PM ET

The weekend forecast for the NASCAR Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series at Martinsville Speedway has improved since the early projections on Tuesday. Rain, which was expected to potentially plague Martinsville all day on Sunday, now isn’t expected until later in the afternoon to evening hours, which *SHOULD* allow for things to get to at least halfway and be official.

RaceWeather.net‘s Aaron Studwell gives the Odds of Racing (OOR) as 85-90%.
