In the last few races at Daytona there were a few interruptions that resulted in weather-related interruptions. Fortunately, the unusual showers usually cleared up quickly and normal operations resumed.

With all of them still in Florida, there is a risk of the occasional soaking. However, reports suggest that conditions will be cloudy on Friday. In the meantime the sky is clear on Saturday and sunny again with a few clouds for the race of the Cup series on Sunday.

While it’s great that the rain gods are predicted to stay away, anything can happen in the next 72 hours. The Cup Series race begins around 3:45 p.m. ET on Sunday.

What can you expect from the NASCAR race in Homestead-Miami?

Denny Hamlin is on pole position for this weekend’s race. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver will be alongside Joey Logano from Team Penske.

Of course, this does not mean that the Dixie Vodka 400 is guaranteed to win. The last few races have shown that pole position is not an indication of victory.

Hamlin urgently needs to get his championship challenge on track. Although he has not yet won a race, he leads the championship from Logano.

With so many strangers this season and so many challengers, the Dixie Vodka 400 could be fun to watch. It’s also worth noting that many of the top competitors are scattered across the grid.

The last two races have produced winners for the first time. Are we on the same path the third time? Or will the usual suspects try to break the mold?

Can Chase Elliott get his championship defense on track or will another driver step on the plate? There are so many questions that need to be answered and the weather is still a big factor this weekend.
