2012 Daytona 500 Postponed Until 7 pm On Monday

The 2012 Daytona 500 was supposed to take place on Sunday afternoon, but rain forced the race to be delayed until Monday afternoon. But the rain hasn't let up in Daytona even to start this week, and the race has now been postponed to 7 pm, with some wiggle room if the rain still hasn't subsided.

This might be good for the television viewing audience because it will give a prime time venue for the biggest race of the year, but racing under the lights might be something that the teams have not prepared for. It should make a race that is never lacking for excitement even more interesting.

For updates on the status of the Daytona 500 today, keep it to the official SB Nation StoryStream. For updates on the go, follow SB Nation Motorsports Editor Jeff Gluck on Twitter. For all things NASCAR, head over to the SB Nation NASCAR hub page.
