Severe thunderstorms halt Sunday's NASCAR race at Chicagoland Speedway



Twelve laps into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Camping World 400 race, the race was stopped as a thunderstorm with frequent lightning and damaging winds barreled toward the Chicagoland Speedway

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Camping World 400 race, originally set to start at 2:16 pm CDT, was moved by officials closer to 2 pm due to the threat of thunderstorms

"Right before the green flag was dropped, lightning was within 1

Temperatures soared to around 90 F at the Chicagoland Speedway before the thunderstorms arrived. When the humidity was factored in, AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures topped 105 F.

If officials decide to postpone the race until Monday afternoon, dry weather is expected. Fans and racers, however, will have to prepare for hot and humid conditions
