The day race at Daytona International Speedway ended up at night.
And now the night race will go off during the day.
Steady rain forced NASCAR to postpone the Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night. It's the second race at the Florida track 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," track president Joie Chitwood III said. "We had it in February and have it now."
The Coke Zero 400 will start at 8 a.m. Sunday (PDT). 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."
The race was supposed to start at 4:57 p.m. Saturday (PDT), but showers soaked the 2½-mile superspeedway and forced officials to delay the green flag and eventually postpone the race.
IndyCar: Driving in his open-wheel return after seven years in NASCAR, Juan Pablo Montoya knocked off Penske teammate Will Power on the final qualifying run at Pocono Raceway in Long Pond, Pennsylvania. Montoya had a two-lap average of 223.871 mph at the 2.5-mile track for his first IndyCar pole. "I feel at home in the car now," said Montoya, who won a Pocono pole in NASCAR in August 2012. He also won 14 open-wheel poles in CART in 1999-2000. Carlos Munoz (223.083) joined Montoya and points leader Power (223.725) on the front row for Sunday's race.
Formula One: Defending four-time champion Sebastian Vettel was one of three Germans who profited from anticipating drying track conditions in qualifying for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, in contrast to local hero Lewis Hamilton. Vettel claimed second place on the grid and will start Sunday's race alongside compatriot and series leader Nico Rosberg with another German Nico Hulkenberg back in fourth. All three jumped ahead of Hamilton in the final seconds after the British driver decided the 3.66-mile circuit was too damp, or wet, for him to improve his best lap time. Hamilton will start sixth.
NHRA: Defending season champion Shawn Langdon had a track-record run in Norwalk, Ohio, to lead Top Fuel qualifying. He powered his 10,000-horsepower dragster to a 3.745-seconds pass at 325.22 mph. Other qualifying leaders were Del Worsham (Funny Car), Erica Enders-Stevens (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle).
