Weather is always a story when NASCAR heads to Atlanta Motor Speedway, so much so that Speedway Motorsports Inc., the track’s parent company, implemented a weather guarantee a few years ago that provided a ticket credit if the race is postponed due to inclement weather.

However, considering that today’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, should fans and bettors still worry about weather that normally affects this race during its traditional spot on the Cup Series schedule in March?

Let’s take a detailed look at today’s NASCAR at Atlanta weather forecast.

NASCAR at Atlanta Weather Forecast

While the track’s name is Atlanta Motor Speedway, it’s actual location is in Hampton, Ga.

According to the National Weather Service, a high temperate of 85 degrees is expected today in Hampton.

In addition, there’s a 30% chance of rain and thunderstorms, mainly after 3 p.m. ET, which is right when today’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 is scheduled to start.

Based on that forecast, it is unlikely that inclement weather affects today’s race.

Should rain become an issue, today’s NASCAR race at Atlanta will become official upon completion of lap 163, the halfway mark of the event.
