The 54th annual Daytona 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway start time has been rescheduled to 7 p.m. ET today. Tickets for Sunday’s race will be honored at that time. Additional tickets will also be on sale at the gate or the Daytona International Speedway ticket office.
The National Weather Service forecasts the steady rain that has fallen since yesterday to continue at least into the mid-afternoon hours. Given that, NASCAR and the speedway have elected not to keep a beleaguered – yet determined – group of race fans waiting in the rain all day, with virtually no hope of a race. Better to call off the dogs until 7 PM, before reconvening for another attempt when the forecast is better.
