NASCAR 2014 Daytona 500 Weather update: When will we race?

Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Rain has ended but can NASCAR and track officials get the track dry in time to finish the Daytona 500 tonight?

Rain came to an end around 6:30 p.m. ET ending what was a four hour onslaught of rain and storms. As of 7:30 p.m. ET the track drying continues and NASCAR hopes to go back to racing by 8:30 p.m. ET

CAN NASCAR GET THE RACE IN? I still want to believe we can. We have a window, if we can get the track dried on-time and the rain coming in off the Gulf of Mexico continues to diminish and dissipate some as it move over the state then we should be able to get the race in. I know there's a lot of "if's" but I think it can be done.

WILL IT BE A COMPLETE RACE OR AN "OFFICIAL" RACE? We are still tracking rain to the west and will continue to monitor but I think there is enough of a window to not only get the race "official" (past halfway) but also complete (all 200 laps)

FORECAST FOR MONDAY? If NASCAR decides to move the race to Monday, the forecast is very similar to today with scattered showers and storms possible in the afternoon.
