The Daytona 500 was supposed to run yesterday, but it was delayed for hours by rain, before ultimately being canceled for the day. Initially, it was rescheduled for Noon today, but it’s now been changed for 7:00PM Eastern.
People were already tweeting their disgust yesterday about the rescheduling, as many would be at work. Some talked about calling in sick. This should make a lot of people happier, although I’m sure there are still plenty that are working at that time as well – especially in the western timezones.
Here’s what people are saying on Twitter now:
I guess the Daytona 500 will be a night race.
Tune in tonight at 7pm on FOX. Daytona 500 under the lights. It’s going to be a show!
Daytona 500 start has been pushed back to 7 pm tonight from noon. “Hurray!” said all 5 NASCAR fans that have jobs.
