Saturday's weather forecast at Darlington looks nearly perfect

BY foxsports • September 3, 2016

No doubt, the weather was nasty on Friday at Darlington Raceway, where all on-track activities were cancelled because of heavy rain and high winds.

But as terrible as the weather was at the track on Friday, it's supposed to be exactly the opposite today.

There was zero percent chance of rain all the way through from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Saturday, with little or no chance or rain all day and night Sunday and a high of 85 degrees expected.

NASCAR adjusted the competition schedule because of the Friday weather, cancelling Sprint Cup qualifying and replacing it with two Saturday practice sessions to give driver's and teams more on-track time to prepare for Sunday night's Bojangles' Southern 500.

In addition to Saturday's Sprint Cup practices and Sunday's Cup race, a 3:30 p.m. ET XFINITY Series race is now expected to go off as scheduled at Darlington today.
