Daytona 500 Weather: Race Could Be Postponed To Monday Or Tuesday

The status of the Daytona 500 starting at any time on Sunday continues to look more bleak. SB Nation's Brian Neudorff is at the scene in Daytona Beach, Florida and doesn't pain a pretty picture for NASCAR fans holding out hope for a race to start on Sunday.

For a brief period this morning, I was thinking, 'Maybe, just maybe,' as rain to the west appeared to be making a move to the north. Since then, the rain continues to stream in from the west and it doesn't look like we will see it end long enough to dry the track and go racing for an official race.

There is so much rain and moisture coming in off the Gulf and it is heading in a more easterly direction. It is riding a stalled boundary like a train on railroad tracks. It is appearing more and more likely we won't see the Daytona 500 on Sunday.

What's worse is that the forecast doesn't look good for a Monday race either, as Neudorff says that the earliest NASCAR could race would be Monday evening. Tuesday looks promising as the forecast calls for dry and sunny skies.
