DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - NASCAR has raced on the beach at Daytona, under the lights, and even around a pesky pothole.
But never on a Monday - until now.
The Daytona 500 was postponed Sunday for the first time in its 54-year history after heavy rain saturated Daytona International Speedway.
NASCAR officials spent more than four hours waiting for a window to dry the track, but it never came. When the last storm cell passed over the speedway around 5 p.m., they had little choice but to call it a day.
