RAIN FORCES POSTPONEMENT OF RACE

MEMPHIS, Tenn., October 4 - A persistent rain here Sunday pushed the O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals to Monday at Memphis Motorsports Park. U.S. Army Top Fuel driver Tony "The Sarge" Schumacher, who qualified third, will take to the track beginning at 9:30 a.m. CT. He will line up against 14th-place qualifier Terry Haddock.

"Man, we were all ready to go and now we'll have to wait until tomorrow," said the six-time world champion. "There's certainly nothing you can do about it. We'll come back on Monday just as focused."

When action resumes, Schumacher will be attempting to defend his 2008 O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals title.

"We'd love to get us another win down here in Memphis," he added. "Of course, we also want to keep rolling along in the Countdown to 1. The real goal is another world championship."
