Daytona 500 Now Set for 7 p.m. Start

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR president Mike Helton says the Daytona 500 will start Monday night at 7 p.m.

Heavy rain soaked Daytona International Speedway on Sunday,
forcing NASCAR to postpone the event for the first time in its
54-year history.

The 500-mile race initially was rescheduled for noon Monday. It
was still raining Monday morning.

Carl Edwards, runner-up to Tony Stewart in last year's
championship race, will start from the pole. Former IndyCar star
Danica Patrick will make her Daytona 500 debut.
