The NASCAR weather report has already had a significant impact on the weekend's activity ahead of Sunday's Food City Dirt Race (7 p.m. ET, FOX).

Both NASCAR Cup Series practices were canceled on Friday due to rain, and while precipitation did fall on Saturday, it wasn't enough to wash out or even delay yesterday's on-track activity, including qualifying and the Craftsman Truck Series race.

Interestingly, a dirt surface can handle a drizzle much more effectively than pavement, which gives NASCAR a bit more leeway to allow cars to race as long as the rain isn't heavy or doesn't last too long.

So if you're wondering whether we'll have to dodge rain again tonight at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee, here's the latest NASCAR weather forecast for the Food City Dirt Race.

NASCAR Weather Report for Bristol

According to the National Weather Service, it appears that we're all clear for today's Food City Bristol Dirt Race.

The updated NASCAR weather report shows that plenty of sun is expected throughout the day, giving way to cold, but clear conditions tonight.

In fact, once the sun rises on Sunday morning, there is a 0% chance of rain in Bristol today (and tonight) based on the hourly breakdown, so we should be good to go for Sunday's Food City Dirt Race.

As of the time of writing, pole-sitter Kyle Larson and Tyler Reddick are your race co-favorites at +450 NASCAR odds, followed by Christopher Bell (+650), Joey Logano (+850) and defending race winner Kyle Busch (+1000), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
