One thing you have to love about NASCAR is that its biggest race of the year doesn't come at the end of the season. It comes at the start.

It's time for the Daytona 500. It's just one day later than usual.

If you're a NASCAR fan, the 500 needs no introduction. Daytona International Speedway. (Located in, of course, Daytona Beach, Fla.) A two-and-a-half-mile trivial with cars running three-wide. More than 100,000 fans on hand. A stone's throw from the Atlantic Ocean. Sight of some of stock-car racing's greatest wins — and its most tragic events.

Even if you're not a NASCAR fan, this is the one race you should watch each year.

All of this makes Sunday's postponement a giant disappointment. After racers got only 20 laps in, heavy rains led to NASCAR moving the race to today, Monday Feb. 17 at 4 p.m. Eastern . Fans at the track and those at home had to be bummed as their free Sunday for watching racing now needs to squeeze into their workday, or while they're busy on the go.

Well rev your engines back up, race fans. Even if you can't be on the couch to watch Daytona on the big screen, we've got everything you need to watch the 2020 Daytona 500 Livestream on your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any other device you have handy. You can even use your office computer. Just don't get caught, unless your boss is a Kyle Busch fan.

Let's break it down.

One of the greatest things about TV in 2019 is that you don't actually have to pay a dime to watch it. No monthly fees. No subscriptions.

All you need as a good over-the-air antenna, you need to point it the right direction, and you need a TV with a tuner built in. (And yours almost certain does.)

Hook everything up, scan for channels, and that's it. You're watching the race.
