All of NASCAR’s series will be in action this weekend but will be in two separate places. The Truck Series and the Cup Series will run their respective races at the World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in Madison, Illinois. The Xfinity Series will head to Portland, Oregon, and the Portland International Raceway for its events.
The Xfinity and Cup Series were both affected by the weather last weekend and had to pull a doubleheader with back-to-back races on Monday to stay on schedule. The weather in Illinois looks good for Saturday and Sunday, with just a chance for an afternoon summer storm on Friday. The weather forecast for Portland looks great for racing, and we shouldn't see any rain.
Below we’ll take a look at the weather projected for the World Wide Technology Raceway this weekend in Madison, Illinois, with info courtesy of AccuWeather. As always with the weather, forecasts are all tentative.
