Countdown To Daytona: 1

February 21, 2013, Reid Spencer, NASCAR Wire Service,

The number of Daytona 500s that have not been run on the scheduled date because of rain. For the first time last year, persistent storms forced postponement of the race until Monday night, making for the first prime time week-night running of the Great American Race. This year, NASCAR introduced a new Air Titan track dryer that will significantly shorten drying time and increase the chances of completing a race in the event of intermittent storms.
