The Daytona 500 will be held Sunday afternoon
More than 100,000 racing fans will pack into the Daytona International Speedway on Sunday afternoon for this year’s Daytona 500. And when the green flag is waved, 40 cars will take off on a 200-lap journey to vie for the coveted Harley J. Earl trophy.
And while the forecast for Daytona Beach calls for partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-70s, many cities across the U.S. won't be as fortunate with the warm weather.
