(Fontana, California) --. After getting off to a solid start in today's season finale at the California Speedway in Fontana, PacWest drivers Mark Blundell and Mauricio Gugelmin will have to wait until tomorrow to finish off their 2001 campaigns.

Just 33 laps of the 250-lap event were run today until rain delayed the remainder of the Marlboro 500 -- the 20th round of the FedEx Championship Series.

Blundell, driver of the #18 Motorola PacWest Mercedes-Benz, and Gugelmin, pilot of the #17 Nextel PacWest Mercedes-Benz, started 21st and 22nd respectively, but had moved to 16th and 17th by the time the rain had moved in.

They will resume their efforts when the race restarts at 1pm ET (10am local time) tomorrow and the race will be shown live on ESPN.
