Daytona 500 racers to start engines Monday night

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Start your engines!

For the first time ever -- the Daytona 500 will be decided on a Monday night!

The green flag is set to drop in about at 7:02 p.m.

Bad weather forced NASCAR to postpone the race on Sunday.

It was initially re-scheduled for noon, but was still raining this morning.

South Bend's own Ryan Newman and David Stremme are among the competitors.
