Did a small tornado cut through Charlotte Motor Speedway on Tuesday? It’s possible. Take a look at this GIF from a camera overlooking the track.


Meteorologist Brad Panovich had tweeted that radar indicated some rotation over the track at the approximate time of the GIF and his early conclusion was either a tornado or microburst hit the track.


Here’s a still image from 5:37 p.m. ET. You can see something just to the right of the scoring tower. Spring weather is crazy.


The track will host the Coca-Cola 600 on May 27 and a representative said the facility didn’t sustain any damage from the storm.
