A couple of weather features will combine to give us some unsettled weather over the next few days. Number 1 is a cold front that is nearing. That front will wind up stalling out across the region as the weekend unfolds.
Number 2 is an upper level disturbance that will be located in a favorable position through the weekend to enhance shower and storm chances.

So, for the Sprint All-Star race tomorrow evening, I can't guarantee there won't be a weather delay somewhere in there, but the event shouldn't be a washout.
