Rain forces postponement of NHRA Division 7 Finals to Monday

at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway


Rain forced drag strip officials to postpone today¿s eliminations for the NHRA Division 7 Finals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to Monday morning, Nov. 8.  Eliminations will resume at 7 a.m., weather permitting.  Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car eliminations will resume at 10:30 a.m.

The first round of eliminations for all sportsman classes were completed when the rain began in the afternoon and continued into the evening.

Race officials estimate approximately 60% of the cars and motorcycles not yet eliminated will be able to stay over to Monday to compete.  The Strip¿s NHRA Div. 7 Finals car count this weekend set an NHRA record at 980 entries (the U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis drew 957 entries).
