NASCAR: Leaders wait out storms

HAMPTON, U.S. – The tail of Tropical Storm Lee swept the Atlanta metropolitan area, causing torrential rain and powerful gusts of wind.

Leaders of the NASCAR still hope that the weather conditions are of the past Tuesday.

The Sprint Cup race contested at Atlanta Motor Speedway was given Sunday night when the storm cells flew over the track before the pilots can put their engine. Because of the bleak weather, the leaders did not even attempt to run the test on Monday.

It was the right decision. The majority of the state of Georgia was on standby alert for tornadoes and flooding on Monday.

The forecast for Tuesday 11am are much better, despite the fact that there is still 30 percent probability of precipitation.
