The weather could wreak havoc with the races at Kansas this weekend


Just a few days from weekend racing at Kansas, the weather looks soggy.

Very soggy.

The Weather Channel's 5-day forecast calls for severe thunderstorms on Saturday, as the chart below shows. There's an 80 percent chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon and 100 percent chance at night, which pretty much means it's going to rain.

There are several Saturday events in jeopardy.

Cup Series practice starts at 10 a.m., followed by Xfinity qualifying (11:05 a.m.), Cup series practice (12:30 p.m.), and the Xfinity race at 2 p.m.

We'll see how much, if any of it, gets in, and if anything is washed out, when the races will run.
