As long as the weather cooperates, all three of the top NASCAR series will hit the concrete at the Monster Mile this weekend, and we tell you how to watch all of them.
For the first time in weeks, all three NASCAR national series will compete at the same track on the same weekend at Dover International Speedway. But there’s a catch, and it could be a significant one.
The weather forecast for Dover, especially on Saturday and Sunday, is not good. Unless things change over the next 24 hours, it’s looking like the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series may get to race as scheduled on Friday afternoon, and then all bets are off after that.
The AAA 400 Drive for Autism that was to be the weekend’s highlight event looks like it is especially high danger of being washed out and moved to Monday. Keep that in mind if you’re thinking about buying last minute tickets for the race.
If you’re only planning on watching on TV, we can help you with that. Assuming that the clouds mostly stay away and allow the racing to go on as scheduled, here’s the full TV schedule for Dover, courtesy of NASCAR.com:
