Rain washes out NHRA schedule

- Associated Press - Sunday, September 2, 2012

CLERMONT, IND. (AP) - Remnants of Hurricane Isaac reached Indiana on Sunday, with steady rain and standing water forcing NHRA officials to cancel the final two qualifying sessions for the U.S. Nationals.

The fields for the final eliminations Monday were established by qualifying sessions Friday and Saturday.

Courtney Force in Funny Car, Spencer Massey in Top Fuel, Erica Enders in Pro Stock, and Andrew Hines in Pro Stock Motorcycle will begin the eliminations in the No. 1 positions.

Force, a Funny Car rookie and the youngest daughter of 15-time champion John Force, took the top spot with a Saturday night pass of 4.049 seconds at a track-record 317.27 mph.

The event ends the 17-race regular season. The top 10 in each division will qualify for the six-race Countdown to 1 playoffs.
