DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR's premier event, the season-opening Daytona 500, is being delayed by rain.
Although heavy showers have stopped and numerous jet driers are pushing water off Daytona International Speedway, radar shows more storm cells moving toward the high-banked track.
NASCAR executive Steve O'Donnell wrote on his Twitter feed that ``we'll need some help as rain still headed this way.''
Heavy showers drenched the famed speedway earlier Sunday, sending fans scattering for cover and leaving everyone in wait-and-see mode.
NASCAR officials intend to wait as long as possible in hopes of getting the 500-mile race in Sunday. NASCAR says Fox is committed to broadcasting the event, even it means going head to head with the NBA All-Star game and the Oscars.
