The NASCAR Cup Series season continues on Wednesday with the Alsco Uniforms 500. The race has a start time of 8:00 p.m. ET, but there are many fans expressing concern about whether or not the race will take place. The reason is the weather forecast calling for rain all day long and into the night. The National Weather Service lists 50 percent chance of rain at the race's start time, but this could change in the coming hours.
The NASCAR season has already dealt with multiple weather delays, including two since the sport's return from the recent season postponement. With the race drawing closer, fans took to social media to proclaim that there would be a weather delay, marking the third in four races. Many expressed the belief that the race will start much later and run deep into the night. Others, however, said that the Alsco Uniforms 500 will not take place until Thursday afternoon.
Not looking good tonight rain all day today. Seems like if a cup race is scheduled it’s going to rain.— email@example.com (@gary19592gmail1) May 27, 2020
You know what NASCAR should do. They need to put a dome over Charlotte as soon as now to stop the rain from impacting the track. The worry is that you will kill fans from the exhaustion, but there are no fans in the stands so it might actually work! pic.twitter.com/SKcKdvWteD— Jake Baskinger (@jbaskinger41) May 27, 2020

According to @NASCAR_WXMAN there is a chance that there will be a delay instead of a rain out for tonight's race. I will keep you posted if anything changes.— Alex Bowman Tracker (@BowmanTracker88) May 27, 2020

It might be a long night for NASCAR in Charlotte. The forecast calls for rain throughout the day due to Tropical Storm Bertha.
