Daytona 500 to be Run Under the Lights Tonight
NASCAR’s biggest race, the Daytona 500 was rained out yesterday. Originally, it was supposed to be at noon today, but Mother Nature was again uncooperative. That is actually good news for race fans, as the event is now scheduled to get underway shortly after 7 tonight from Daytona International Speedway in Florida.
This marks the first time in the Daytona 500’s history that the race has been held in prime time. Those of you who had to go to work today thinking that you would miss the race or have to DVR it, can now watch it in real time on Fox.
Carl Edwards will start in the front row in the pole position. IndyCar’s Danica Patrick will make her NASCAR debut in the Daytona 500.
If the weather cooperates, you’ll hear “Lady & Gentlemen, start your engines” tonight in prime time.
