HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) -- The remnants from Tropical Storm Lee are
pushing through the Atlanta area with drenching rain and high wind.
NASCAR only hopes the miserable weather is gone by Tuesday.

That turned out to be a good call. Most of Georgia is under
tornado and flood watches.
The outlook for Tuesday's 11 a.m. start is much better, though
there's still a 30 percent chance of additional showers.
