Rain is possible on Saturday but there is still a chance and opportunity for the Xfinity race. It also looks like we will get to race the Sprint Cup race on Sunday.

Rain showers are likely this morning across the Northeast and for New Hampshire Motor Speedway. This could cause problems for Sprint Cup practice and Xfinity series qualifying. The rain showers will be mostly in the morning with some breaks in the rain during the afternoon. Rain could cause problems for the Xfinity race but they will be less numerous by the afternoon. I’d give the odds of racing the Xfinity race around 55 percent.

Sunday is looking drier but with a chance of isolated showers and storms in the afternoon. While there could be a chance of a storm I don’t think it causes too many issues for NASCAR Sunday afternoon. Odds of racing Sunday are better than 95 percent.
