2012 Daytona 500: Start Time, TV Schedule And More

Columbia's Carl Edwards finished second in the Daytona 500 in 2011, and as he looks this year for a victory at NASCAR's most hollowed track, he'll start in pretty good position, having won pole position in last weekend's qualifying event. Starting first obviously doesn't guarantee that the driver will finish first, but's as good a position to be in as any.

When Edwards and the rest of the drivers actually get their engines going is currently up in the air, as heavy rain has been threatening Daytona Sunday morning, leading to speculation that the race could be pushed back to Sunday night or even Monday afternoon. In the 53-year history of the Daytona 500, the race has never taken place on Monday, but if the weather becomes extremely volatile, NASCAR officials may have no other option.

Race date/time: Sunday, February 26, 2012, 12:00 p.m. CST

TV: FOX

Radio: Motor Racing Network
