CLERMONT, Ind. -- Continual rainstorms on Sunday forced the postponement of eliminations in the final scheduled day of the NHRA Sunoco Fall Classic Federal-Mogul Drag Racing Series event at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

Between rain showers on Sunday, first round eliminations in stock and super stock were completed. Additionally, a full run of sportsman class drivers in the Super Gas and Super Street categories was completed.

More than 600 competitors from across the nation are battling for more than $158,000 in prize money in the final divisional meet of the year.
