With a 60% chance of rain in
The National Weather Service is for a high if 75 degrees and chance of showers throughout the day.
What effect the precipitation has on the track remains to be seen. Track superintendent Butch Lehr told the Courier-Journal that the track could dry out and be fast as long as the rain stopped before racing begins.
To ward off t he effects of overnight rains, track maintenance personnel used equipment to “seal” the track, essentially packing the top surface so water rolls off rather than penetrating the dirt.
