NHRA LUCAS OIL EVENT AT MEMPHIS MOTORSPORTS PARK RESCHEDULED

GLENDORA, Calif. -- This weekend's NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Memphis Motorsports Park has been rescheduled for July 18-20. Because weather forecasts for the weekend call for very low temperatures in the area, NHRA and track officials opted to change the date.

"The cold temperatures in Memphis have us concerned," said NHRA South Central division director Craig Hutchinson. "Even if it doesn't rain or snow, we don't like the prospect of running these high-horsepower cars in these conditions. And we hope that by making the call this early we'll save our racers some travel expenses."

For more information about the upcoming race at Memphis Motorsports Park, call the track, (901) 358-7223 or visit www.MemphisMotorsportsPark.com.

When it is run in July, the race will be the fourth of six NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series events in NHRA's South Central division.
