2012 Daytona 500 Monday TV Schedule: Race Rescheduled For Noon ET, More Rain Forecasted

For the first time in the history of the "Great American Race," let's try this again. Carl Edwards will take the pole alongside Roush Fenway Racing teammate Greg Biffle to lead the pack of hopefuls at Monday's rescheduled Daytona 500, as heavy rains postponed the race from its Sunday slot.

That's not to say the process couldn't repeat itself: Daytona Beach is forecasted for an 80 percent chance of thunderstorms on Monday as well, and the race could be pushed to either Monday night under the light at Daytona Motor Speedway, or Tuesday afternoon.

What does all this mean for racing teams? A huge headache in terms of logistics, as NASCAR heads to Phoenix next weekend and with haulers due to deliver team cars usually on the Thursday before, that's a tough turnaround if the 500 moves into Tuesday.

Date/Time: Monday, February 27, 12 p.m. ET

Location: Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, Florida


Radio: Motor Racing Network

Online Streaming: NASCAR Track Pass
