ENGLISHTOWN NJ - SUMMIT FastNews - It's a soggy morning here at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, a cold front moving through the Northeast part of the country overnight, bringing with it a band of showers. However, according to engine tuner and weather forecaster extraordinare Austin Coil, the current band of showers should be out of here in about 30 minutes and it's clear behind it. And you though all he did was keep John Force from self-destructing!! Assuming Coil is correct, we will be running at least an hour behind the original schedule today because of the rain delay. The track is thoroughly saturated, with standing water in places, so it's going to take at least an hour to dry the track once the rain ends. The schedule for today was pretty standard, final eliminations starting at 11:00 AM and continuing through the day, with the final round at about 5:00 PM. With the rain, however, the emphasis will be on getting the Pro rounds completed, with the other categories sandwiched in wherever they fit. We'll be posting hourly weather updates on Summit Racing's Drag Race Central until either we start racing or the NHRA announces a change in the schedule. Next update will be at 11:15 AM EDT.
