Daytona 500 updates, highlights from NASCAR race 2024 with rain gone.

  • The Daytona 500 and United Rentals 300 were postponed because of weather. The 500 is set to start about 4:30 p.m., while the Daytona Xfinity race was moved back to 9 p.m.
  • Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will serve as grand marshal for the Daytona 500. Other pre-race festivities, including Pitbull’s concert, have been canceled.

As a great ballplayer once suggested, let’s play two!

Three times, Daytona’s Saturday race has been bumped to Monday due to rain.

Twice, rain has forced the Daytona 500 to Monday.

But in a first, due to an entire weekend washout, Monday gets a doubleheader at Daytona: The United Rentals 300, the Xfinity Series season opener, scheduled for an 11 a.m. start, followed by the 66th edition of the Great American Race, slated for green flag at 4 p.m.
