NASCAR officials have postponed the Daytona 500 to Monday because of rain, meaning it will join the season-opening Xfinity Series race in a first-ever doubleheader at Daytona International Speedway to start the work week.

A combination of Saturday rainfall and Sunday‘s threatening weather forecast prompted officials to push the 66th running of the Daytona 500 to Monday at 4 p.m. ET, to be telecast on FOX with radio coverage through MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The “Great American Race” had been scheduled for a Sunday, 2:30 p.m. ET start.
