2012 Daytona 500 Weather: Race Postponed Due To Rain, Rescheduled For Monday

The Daytona 500 has been postponed due to inclement weather for the first time in the 54-year history of the race. SB Nation's Jeff Gluck reports that the race will take place on Monday with the green flag scheduled to drop at 12:01 p.m. ET.

Officials had hoped that the weather would break long enough to get the race in on Sunday afternoon. After midday showers cleared the dryers were on the track before another round of rain hit the race track prompting NASCAR officials to reschedule the race. Monday's forecast is also in question and there is a chance that the start time could be pushed back yet again.
