Rain Postpones Memphis Eliminations until Monday

Continuous rains that enveloped Memphis Motorsports Park on Sunday forced NHRA officials to postpone the final eliminations of the O'Reilly NHRA Mid-South Nationals in Memphis, TN. Racing in the professional classes are now set to get underway on Monday at 10:00 a.m. starting with the first round of Top Fuel.

When the on-track action does resume, Summit Racing driver Greg Anderson, who qualified second, will take on No. 15 qualifier Mark Hogan, while his stable mate Jason Line will open against veteran Steve Schmidt. Despite the 24-hour delay, it will be business as usual for talented tandem.

"I've seen this happen a million times before, and I've been shocked that every time it happened this year it always seemed to miraculously stop when we need it to," said Anderson. "Although it unfortunately our luck ran out today, there's really nothing we can do about it. The Summit Racing team will just have to go home, regroup and come back tomorrow ready to race like it's Sunday."

"We certainly can't control the weather, so we'll just come back tomorrow and try again," added Line. "I do feel bad for the fans who came out today -- hopefully they'll be able to come back tomorrow and see us race. Other than having to wait until Monday, the job remains the same -- win rounds and do whatever we can to put one of these Summit Racing Pontiacs in the winner's circle."
