Rain has forced the postponement of Saturday night’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 to 1 p.m. ET Sunday afternoon at Daytona International Speedway.

The rescheduled race will be televised on NBC.

The Cup garage is scheduled to open at 10 a.m. ET. Fan gates will open at 11:30 a.m. ET. Driver intros are scheduled for 12:30 p.m. ET.

Precipitation began Saturday shortly before 6 p.m. ET. The green flag was scheduled to drop at 7:40 p.m. ET, but rain remained steady and the forecast for the rest of the evening showed it wasn’t likely to stop until close to midnight ET.

Qualifying for Saturday’s originally scheduled race was rained out Friday. When Sunday’s rescheduled race begins, Joey Logano and Kyle Busch will be on the front row based upon driver point standings.
