LONDON, ON - The start of the 2003 CASCAR Super Series season will have to wait one more day. Constant rain showers in the London area have forced Delaware Speedway and CASCAR officials to cancel the Friday night portion of the MOPAR 300 race weekend. The evening was to have featured time trials and the Twin 100 qualifying Sprint races.

As a result, time trial qualifying for the season opening Super Series race will take place on Saturday afternoon at 2:15 p.m. The starting grid for Sunday's MOPAR 300 will be set based entirely on a combination of the results of the time trial session, and provisional starting positions.

The Twin 100 qualifying Sprint races, originally scheduled for Friday evening, won't be part of the revamped weekend schedule. Having the 100-lappers take place the day before Sunday's main event would not have given teams enough time to make repairs, should they have been involved in a significant crash on Saturday.

Following the CASCAR time trial session, the previously planned Saturday schedule, featuring regular Delaware Speedway classes, will resume.

Sunday's schedule, with its 2:15 p.m. start for the season opening MOPAR 300, is unchanged.
