RAIN CONTINUES TO DELAY RACING AT KRAGEN O'REILLY NHRA WINTERNATIONALS IN POMONA

POMONA, Calif. -- Rain continued to soak the grounds of Auto Club Raceway at Pomona Monday, forcing NHRA officials to postpone the continuation of eliminations for the Kragen O'Reilly NHRA Winternationals until Tuesday. It is the fifth straight day where a series of winter storms off the Pacific have brought heavy rain to the Southern California region and continued to delay the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series season-opener.

The second round of Top Fuel and Funny Car eliminations will open Tuesday's racing, starting at 11:30 a.m., and will be followed by the continuation of the first round of Pro Stock.

Tickets will be available for Tuesday's racing for $26. Fans holding tickets for any of the rain-delayed days (Thurs., Fri., Sun. or Mon.) may redeem those tickets on Tuesday for entry.

ESPN2 coverage for the race now will be televised in a 30-minute show tonight at 9:30 p.m. (ET) and another 30-minute highlight show on Sunday, Feb. 15 in a yet to be determined time slot.
