HAMPTON, Ga. The remnants from Tropical Storm Lee pushed through the Atlanta area with a fury, bringing heavy rain and fierce wind.
NASCAR only hopes the miserable weather is gone by today.
The Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway was postponed Sunday night when the outer bands of the storm doused the track before the drivers could even start their engines. Given the gloomy forecast, officials didnt even bother trying to hold the race on Monday.
That turned out to be a good call. Most of Georgia was under tornado and flood watches, with thunderstorms expected through the evening.
The outlook for AdvoCare 500 was much better this morning, though there was still a 30 percent chance of additional showers.
