Weather is always a factor for NASCAR races, so here’s what’s projected for Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina.

NASCAR will stay in North Carolina this weekend, but will head to Concord. The highlight of Memorial Day weekend in motorsports is the Coca-Cola 600 which will run on Sunday, May 28. The Truck Series and Xfinity Series will also be in action for a jam-packed weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

If you like uncertainty over NASCAR events and whether or not they will get canceled due to rain, then this is the weekend for you. Friday’s events have the best chance of getting in, with Saturday and Sunday truly depending on not if it will rain, but when or how much.

Below we’ll take a look at the weather projected for the Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend in Concord, North Carolina, with info courtesy of AccuWeather. As always with the weather, forecasts are all tentative.
