HOUSTON - Rain Delay
By Larry Sullivan

The Green Blob That Ate Houston



BAYTOWN, Texas - It's Saturday morning and a green blob is attacking Houston. The dreaded "R-word" started showing up in the local weather forecasts Tuesday and as the week went on the probabilities kept growing.

Rain finally arrived at Houston Raceway Park at 11:00 AM EDT, just enough to delay the start of the third qualifying session for Pro Stock Motorcycles by a few minutes. Then, around 11:35 AM, rain started in earnest, bringing things to a complete halt after just six pairs of qualifiers made their runs.

The rain is expected to be "scattered," so we should have ample opportunity to watch the Safety Safari doing their rain removal ritual (sort of a reverse rain dance).

Come back in an hour or so and we'll let you know how it's going. The rain is already letting up and the drying process should begin shortly.
