Spring Nascar Race Climatology in Charlotte

It’s that time of the year again for the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Seems like every year weather plays a key role on the race. Usually it’s in the form of thunderstorms which when it’s May in the Carolinas you are right in the heart of severe weather season. Not to mention racing 600 miles from daylight to nighttime always makes weather a key part of this annual race.


Here’s a look at the climatology for the spring race thanks to  William Schmitz at the Southeast Climate Center.
