Rain Delays Eliminations
By Larry Sullivan

POMONA, Calif. - 8:30 a.m. - The weather forecasts called for a chance of rain on all three of the qualifying days at the 47th annual CARQUEST Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals, but, aside from a very light sprinkle early Saturday, the weather has been almost perfect for racing.

Not so today. Rain moved into the Pomona facility overnight and it is still raining, so there's little chance that final eliminations will kick off at 11 a.m., as scheduled.

The morning forecasts on local TV stations call for the rain to end at "mid-day," followed by cloudy to partly-cloudy skies, so there is a good chance we will at least get started later today.

It will take 5-6 hours to complete the remaining event schedule once the action gets started, barring any major delays, so there is still a chance the event can be completed before today's 7 p.m. curfew.

Right now, rain and mist dominate. The end of the dragstrip is invisible from the tower except for the headlights of a Safety Safari truck parked in front of the sand pit.

We'll let you know when the situation changes.
