2012 Daytona 500: Race Drivers Could Be In For Long Delay

Work is continuing to clean up the wreckage at Daytona International Speedway after Juan Pablo Montoya's crash involving a jet dryer caused a red flag with 40 laps remaining in the 2012 Daytona 500. Word is starting to spread that they could be in for a long delay and it could take several hours to get this work completed.

This year's race has been mired by delays and was moved to Monday for the first time in 54 years after rain blanketed the speedway on Sunday. The race was originally scheduled to start at noon on Tuesday but was later postponed to 7 pm to avoid more rain.
