As projected by weather forecasters on Thursday, a large disturbance of rain clouds flew over top of Daytona Beach. Dampening all of Friday's activities connected to Hersheys Speedways at Daytona International Speedway, the soaked 2.5 mile oval halted NASCAR's Nationwide Series qualifying for the Drive4COPD 300 and later the Friday night Camping World Truck Series NextEra Energy Resources 250 race.

Though mostly clear skies are predicted for the rest of NASCAR's big opening weekend (including the rescheduled Camping World Truck Series NextEra Energy Resources 250) the daily temperatures (according to will certainly be cool. With the daily-high temperature running as much as 20 degrees Fahrenheit lower than average for this period, Saturday will be in the lower 50s at the peak of the day. Sunday is reported to be a mild improvement but race fans will still require a heavy, long sleeve shirt or jacket to enjoy stock car racing's most popular 500 mile race.
