Breaking down the weather forecast for Dixie Vodka 400 at Miami-Homestead Speedway

Weather is always a factor for NASCAR races, so here’s what’s projected for Dixie Vodka 400 at Miami-Homestead Speedway

AUTO: OCT 16 NASCAR Cup Series Playoff South Point 400

NASCAR will be in Florida this week for its events. The Truck Series, Xfinity Series and Cup Series will all be in action holding important playoff chase races. The action starts on Friday, October 21 and runs through Sunday, October 23. With the races being in Florida there is a chance the weather can be a factor, but it looks fairly good for the Homestead-Miami Speedway weekend.

Friday offers the biggest chance for bad weather. There will be Floridian t-storms in the area, and there is a 40% chance of rain. After that, the race days on Saturday and Sunday shouldn’t be affected by the weather. There is currently no chance of rain for those days so the races should be good to go!

Below we’ll take a look at the weather projected for the Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend in Homestead, Florida, with info courtesy of AccuWeather. As always, with the weather, forecasts are all tentative.
