Rain possible at the Roval; how they’ll race

The threat of rain looms over this weekend’s races for the NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval. Since it’s a road-course venue, teams will have rain tires at the ready should conditions allow for wet-weather racing.

For a wet weather start: All vehicles must mount rain tires, activate their rear flashing light and have a working windshield wiper installed.

For more on rain procedures, see NASCAR.com

AND: Goodyear will bring its wet weather radials for use on the Charlotte roval, should NASCAR decide that conditions warrant. Cup teams are allowed up to four sets for their 109-lap race.

Xfinity teams are allowed up to two sets of "wets" for their 67-lap race; this tire was last run in NASCAR competition by Xfinity Series teams at Road America this past August.

In addition to the obvious difference of a tread pattern vs. Goodyear’s dry weather "slick" tires, the "Goodyear" and "Eagle" lettering on the sidewalls of the wet weather tires is white, not the standard yellow.
