IHRA Canadian Nationals To Be Completed on 1/8th-Mile

CAYUGA, Ontario (September 10, 2007) -- IHRA officials have announced the Canadian Nationals presented by PartSource will be completed as an 1/8th-mile competition.

Following a full day of rain on Sunday, the racing surface at Toronto Motorsports Park during round one of eliminations on Monday began to release moisture near the outside guardwalls. While that round was completed without problems, the situation began to worsen as the day went on, therefore forcing race officials to make the call to finish on the 1/8th-mile.

"Safety is always our No. 1 concern and we are again making the call to run 1/8th-mile with that in mind," said IHRA vice president of racing operations Skooter Peaco. "The water was controllable during first round, but by the end it was to a point where it is more than we can keep up with now. With impending rain moving in, we didn't want to take a chance to not finish today."

The next round of professional qualifying will begin at 2:30 p.m.
