DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Indiana's NewsCenter )- Rain, rain go away. That is the thought of NASCAR today, after more weather has forced the rescheduled start time of this year's Daytona 500 to pushed back to 7 p.m.

NASCAR president Mike Helton saying in a press conference on Monday morning that he can't guarantee the race will start at 7, but there is a much better chance then starting at noon.

Sunday marked the first time in the race's history that weather postponed "The Great American Race"
