Racing / March 20, 2020

One NASCAR event was already delayed because of bad weather at Daytona International Speedway last weekend. It appears two more may also be affected this week.

The Can-Am Duel at Daytona races, which determine the order of the Daytona 500 qualifying field, face a threat of rain Thursday. Practice has already been canceled Thursday. Here's a look at the Daytona weather forecast for Thursday's races.

Duel at Daytona weather updates

The two-race event is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET, but AccuWeather reports a 34 percent chance at start time. Thunderstorms are expected around 5 p.m. Though the threat of rain is low at start time, the Duels could be delayed as the track dries.

Clash winner Chase Elliott and runner-up Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start at the front of their 21-car fields for the Duel races at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., respectively. Below are the starting lineups for both Duels (asterisks denotes "open" drivers who need to race their way into the Daytona 500 during the Duels).
