The Daytona 500, originally scheduled for Noon, has been postponed until 7:00PM ET tonight due to more rain.
Coverage will still be on FOX beginning at that time. Weather.com’s forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms through 5pm with the weather clearing afterward. Though an unexpected shower could cause further delays. Organizers are “hopeful” the weather will clear long enough to dry the track and have the race tonight. This was the race’s first postponement in its 54-year history.
I’m personally looking forward to watching the big race today, despite not being a die-hard Nascar fan. Maybe its Danica’s -tweets- or the number of crashes there are going to be. Either way its raining here in Los Angeles, so why not stay in and watch the Daytona 500.
