HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) - The remnants from Tropical Storm Lee are pushing through the Atlanta area with drenching rain and high wind.
NASCAR only hopes the miserable weather is gone by Tuesday.
The Sprint Cup race at Atlanta Motor Speedway was postponed Sunday night when the outer bands of the storm doused the track before the drivers could even start their engines. Given the gloomy forecast, officials didn't even bother trying to hold the race on Monday.
That turned out to be a good call. Most of Georgia is under tornado and flood watches.
The outlook for Tuesday's 11 a.m. start is much better, though there's still a 30 percent chance of additional showers.
