Daytona 500 2012: Start Time, TV Schedule And More

Brad Keselowski: Michigan native Brad Keselowski will start in the 23rd position in the grid of NASCAR's biggest race, which is scheduled for today. And after crashing in practice on Wednesday, Keselowski has said that he is "most nervous" about the final lap of the race, via SpeedTV.

"When I look at the sport and I look at the most dangerous frontier, it's not the next head-and-neck system, it's getting hit from a car who is six or seven seconds from a wreck but has to keep going because the yellow is not out," Keselowski said. "It eventually will happen where they'll hit a very slow car at a very high rate of speed and it will not be good.

There is reason for optimism if you are a Kaselowski fan: He posted the fastest 10-lap average during practice on Friday, edging Kyle Busch, via SI.com.

What time does the Daytona 500 actually start? The Daytona 500 is listed as an 1 p.m. Eastern start time, but the green flag is not scheduled to fly until 1:29 p.m. Eastern. However, rain has delayed the start of the event.
