DAYTONA BEACH, FL (KSNT) — The results of the 62nd Daytona 500 should of been in the books, but mother nature always has the final word.

Emporia native Clint Bowyer tweeted about the delay.

Rain has delayed the 500 after 20 official laps.

18 NASCAR air titans, along with 12 jet dryers, two vacuums and one sweeper tried to dry the track.

Cars were called back to pit roads where teams and drivers played the waiting game.

Ultimately, the race has been delayed to start Monday afternoon.
