Daytona 500 weather update: Rain forces NASCAR to postpone race

NASCAR’s bad luck with weather continued in 2024 as the crown jewel of the schedule was forced to be postponed to Monday.

It’s been raining at Daytona International Speedway nearly nonstop since Saturday morning, and with persistent rain in the forecast until early Monday, there was zero chance that NASCAR would find a dry window to start the race.

Instead, fans sticking around in soggy Daytona will get a doubleheader, with both the Xfinity Series opener and the Daytona 500 set to run on Monday.

The 2024 Daytona 500 will start at 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox.

It’s still possible we see further weather delays. There’s a 30 percent chance of rain Monday morning, which tapers off to about a 10 percent chance by the time the Cup Series race is scheduled.

On Monday morning, the Xfinity Series’ United Rentals 300, originally scheduled for 11 a.m. ET, was postponed to 9 p.m. ET (FS1) due to rain.
