After an unsuccessful attempt to wait out the rain, NASCAR postponed the race until Monday afternoon, which will create a logistical nightmare for crews needing to get across the country before next weekend. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will begin the restart with the lead.
Last year, Denny Hamlin won the Daytona 500. The year before that, Austin Dillon took the crown.
