The NASCAR Daytona 500 Sprint Cup series auto race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., was postponed from Sunday to Monday evening due to rain. The race was red-flagged after Juan Pablo Montoya's car slewed sideways and struck a jet dryer, which burst into flames. Later, Matt Kenseth won the race. Columbia native Carl Edwards finished in eighth place.
