The Race That Refused To End:

NHRA Div. 7 Finals at The Strip at LVMS again delayed by rain

 

The NHRA Division 7 Finals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was supposed to have concluded by Sunday evening.  Incessant rain forced race officials to postpone eliminations to Monday morning (today).  Racing was underway today when thundershowers hit the track shortly after noon.

The event drew an NHRA-record 980 entries, including Top Alcohol Dragsters and Top Alcohol Funny Cars.  Ashley Force, daughter of 13-time NHRA Funny Car champion John Force, qualified third in her Top Alcohol Dragster.

Racing will resume when the weather subsides.  Please check www.LVMS.com and www.NHRA.com for updates.
