DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Steady rain caused NASCAR officials to postpone the Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night.
It was the second race at Daytona this year delayed by rain. The season-opening Daytona 500 was stopped for more than six hours because of rain and ended under the lights.
“We seem to have a little bad luck with the weather,” said Joie Chitwood III, the track president. “We had it in February and we have it right now.”
The Coke Zero 400 will start at 8 a.m. PDT on Sunday and is to be televised on TNT. The forecast calls for more rain Sunday, but Chitwood said scheduling an early start gives NASCAR a “bigger window of time to get it in.”
