DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR president Mike Helton says the Daytona 500 will start Monday night at 7 p.m.
Heavy rain soaked Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, forcing NASCAR to postpone the event for the first time in its 54-year history.
The 500-mile race initially was rescheduled for noon Monday. It was still raining Monday morning.
Carl Edwards, runner-up to Tony Stewart in last year's championship race, will start from the pole. Former IndyCar star Danica Patrick will make her Daytona 500 debut.
