RAINS CANCEL FRIDAYS ACTION AT PHOENIX

CHANDLER, Ariz. (Feb. 22, 2008) -- Antron Brown, who earned the pole at the season-opening Winternationals two weeks ago, will have to wait a day to attempt to race the Matco Tools dragster to the No. 1 qualifying position for a second straight event as Friday's qualifying action was canceled due to afternoon rain showers in the Valley of the Sun.

Professional nitro qualifying for the 24th annual CSK Nationals remains as scheduled. Top Fuel dragsters will qualify at 12:30 and 3 p.m. (MT) on Saturday at Firebird International Raceway. Brown drove his Lee Beard-tuned rail to the No. 1 position at Pomona (Calif.) with a pass of 4.495-seconds to lead the field at the 48th annual Winternationals. Brown was the eighth different driver that Beard has tuned to a pole and ranks fifth in the NHRA standings.
