The 2012 Daytona 500, delayed since Sunday at noon, could be run Monday night. NASCAR's shooting for a 7 p.m. ET start on FOX, which would have it lingering well into prime time, as these things take some time and you never know when more rain might trickle through.

For NASCAR's sake, we'll hope television ratings don't suffer due to the schedule shifting. Going on Monday night is highly unusual and poses all sorts of logistical and sponsorship issues, not to mention turning away thousands of attendees.
Location: Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, Florida
