Daytona 500 Live Stream Online : The scheduled start time for the 2019 Daytona 500 is 2:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 17. Yet we all know the green flag for the start of the 61st annual Great American Race will not wave until later Sunday afternoon. NASCAR will precede the start of the race with a presentation of colors, an invocation and the national anthem.
Last year’s Daytona 500, for example, also was scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. ET. But the command for drivers to start their engines was not given until 2:53 p.m. ET, and the green flag waved at 3:05 p.m. ET. Expect another Daytona 500 start time around 3:05 p.m. ET again in 2019.
