DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. --- The 54th running of Daytona 500 has been postponed until noon Monday.

The originally-scheduled 1:29 p.m. start of the race was delayed by rain, with two abortive attempts made to dry the track, the last of which was halted at 5:07 p.m. when rain halted drying operations.

It was the first time in 53 years that NASCAR's season-opening race had been postponed by rain.
