DAYTONA BEACH, FL -- For just the second time in its' 62 year history, the Daytona 500 will end on a Monday. Torrential afternoon rains postponed "The Great American Race" and it will resume at 4 p.m. with just 20 laps completed. Pole sitter Ricky Stenhouse Jr. is the leader as a second heavier rain soaked the track and it never resumed.

The drivers were called back to their vehicles just before 7 p.m. to try to get some more laps completed but that never happened as another line of showers caused the final decision to move the race to Monday.
