2012 Daytona 500 Postponed Until Monday

Unfortunately, the 54th running of the Daytona 500 must wait until Monday. Precipitous rains all day on Sunday have made the track too dangerous to race on and more rain is expected. It will now start at 10:00 a.m. MT on Monday, reports SB Nation's Jeff Gluck.

However, the forecast for Monday is even worse with the potential for thunderstorms most of the day. If it can't get in then, Tuesday would appear to be an optimal day since rain is not in the forecast.

Denver's Furniture Row Racing has Regan Smith in the race, and he will start in the sixth spot whenever the race does start.
