Once again, there is really no change for the forecast for the Indycar Series Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. Hot and dry conditions will rule the weather headlines this weekend, with highs reaching the lower to mid 90s and heat indices in the 95-100º range. Qualifying on Friday evening should be in the upper 80s with only a light southeasterly wind. Race conditions on Saturday will start off in the upper 80s at the drop of the green flag, and falling into the upper 70s by the checkered flag. Good news there is no chance of rain. Please stay hydrated and find ways to stay cool if you are attending the race.
