MEMPHIS - It's "Plan B" For Tonight and Sunday
By Larry Sullivan





MILLINGTON, Tenn. - We're down to Plan B or Plan C - with Plan B still the most likely scenario.

A brief rain shower during the second qualifying session for Pro Stock Motorcycle delayed things to the point where running a third Pro qualifying session tonight (or early tomorrow morning) was likely to run into moisture problems. The third Pro session is now scheduled for 10 AM Sunday.

In a related move, race officials cancelled all eliminations planned for later tonight and will run all remaining eliminations Sunday, including Pro Stock Truck.

Tonight's schedule will conclude with the second Funny Car qualifying session.

Sunday will open at 8 AM with Stock and Super Stock round 1 eliminations. The third Pro qualifying session will start at 10 AM, opening with Funny Car, followed by Top Fuel, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycle.

Final eliminations will begin at 1 PM Sunday.

Confusing? You betcha. But it's better than finishing up on Monday or postponing things until next weekend
