Tornado Warning, Heavy Storms Cancel NASCAR Qualifying

Thousands of fans who gathered Friday at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort-Worth to watch qualifying for Sunday’s Samsung 500 were advised to move to safety as tornado sirens blaster across the speedway. Qualifying for the NASCAR event was canceled as strong hailstorms moved through the area. The National Weather Service reported that a tornado had been spotted between Fort Worth and Dallas.
