A Nashville suburb plays host to all three NASCAR circuits this weekend at Nashville Superspeedway. The track sits in Lebanon, Tennessee and is a 45-minute drive from downtown Nashville.

The weather forecast is looking good for Saturday and Sunday, but Friday could bring some intermittent showers. Heading into Friday, the hourly forecast is showing rain at 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. CT (local time), but otherwise it’s going to be mostly cloudy. It will be worth keeping an eye out for some potential delays, but Saturday and Sunday should be fine for the schedule.
