DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- 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. Its 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 11 a.m. Sunday, about 14 hours after officials postponed the event. 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 7:57 p.m. Saturday, but showers soaked the 2 1/2-mile superspeedway and forced officials to delay the green flag and eventually postpone the race. This is the fourth Cup race affected by rain this season and the second to be postponed a day. Bristol also was affected by rain, and Texas was delayed a day. Despite the latest washout, Chitwood does not want the race moved from its traditional Saturday night spot around the July Fourth holiday. The race has been run in that spot for 27 years, and prior to that, it went on the annual holiday itself. Chitwood was reminded of what a rain-free event looked like as he watched a replay of last years Coke Zero 400 during Saturdays delay. "The crowd was fantastic and the weather was good and we gave the fans a heck of a show," he said. "I think July Fourth weekend is a great time." Blank USA Jersey .

For the 23-year-old its destination, Buffalo. Stroman was optioned back to the Bisons and will pick up there where he left off at the time of his recall on May 4, in the starting rotation. Hes got a 1.69 ERA and a miniscule 1.088 WHIP in five starts for Buffalo this season and while hes disappointed to be leaving behind charter flights and five star hotels for the rigours of a bus, hes glad to return to the routine he knows best. "I want to be a starter 100-percent," said Stroman. "Thats the role I thought I was going to be in when I came up here. I think in the long run hopefully I can be a starter and show that I can start at this level. Thats the plan." Stroman made five relief appearances for the Blue Jays, two of which were in high-leverage situations. He thrived in an inning and a third of work on May 6 in Philadelphia, preserving a 5-5 tie to the 10th and picking up his first career major league victory. In the other, he struggled, relieving Drew Hutchison in the fifth inning of a May 11 loss to the Angels, in which he entered trailing 3-1 but left down 7-1. "First go around, there were a couple of outings where he was really good and a couple of outings where he struggled and gave up some hits," said manager John Gibbons. "But hes like anybody else, you feel your way around, get your feet wet, and when it comes down to it you have to make pitches, quality pitches. When you make mistakes, you leave balls up in the zone, hang breaking balls, at this level they dont miss them." With Dustin McGowan returned to the bullpen, where he thrived last season, the Blue Jays will next need a body for McGowans turn in the rotation on Saturday, at home against Oakland. Stromann is ineligible because, as a player on option to the minor leagues, hes required to spend 10 days there before a recall.dddddddddddd Thats the paperwork end of it. The real life part of the equation is that he needs to get his arm stretched back out. Its a lot to ask of a guy to make his first major league start against one of baseballs best teams having not worked deep into a game for the better part of a month. Its clear what Stroman wants to be doing when his eventual return to the Blue Jays becomes reality. He hedged when asked if he would have preferred to remain in Buffalo until such time Toronto was ready to put him in the rotation. "Its hard to say. Its hard to say," said Stroman. "Obviously whatever opportunity you get to contribute at the big-league level you want to jump on it and go. But Ive been groomed as a starter for the past year and a half so its hard saying otherwise. Its tough but you take it in stride and see what happens." As for who will make Saturdays start against the Athletics, the Jays options off the current roster are thin. Todd Redmond would be the guy. More likely is either Sean Nolin, a lefthander who made his major league debut and was hit hard in a game last May against Baltimore, or Liam Hendriks, a spring-time waiver claim pickup from the Orioles whos a noted strike thrower but has had little success at the big league level spread over parts of three seasons with the Twins. Hendriks is 5-0 with a 1.48 ERA for the Bisons in seven starts. General manager Alex Anthopoulos was in attendance for his most recent start, a seven inning performance in which he allowed one run but got a no-decision. For his big league career, Hendriks, 25, is 2-13 with a 6.06 ERA and a 5.31 FIP. A control pitcher, Hendriks doesnt walk many hitters but his 1.590 WHIP reflects the 202 hits hes allowed in 156 innings. ' ' '
