Rain Halts Friday Qualifying for Gateway Event

Madison, Ill. (May 1, 2009) -- Despite repeated attempts by officials between rain showers to dry the racetrack, Mother Nature prevented Team Mopar NHRA Full Throttle Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson and fellow competitors from completing Friday qualifying for the O'Reilly NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway International Raceway.

Intermittent rain showers throughout the day turned into a downpour by late afternoon, causing NHRA officials to call it a day at 4:00 p.m. without any rounds completed.

Johnson is especially looking forward to this weekend's event, his 300th career race in the Pro Stock class. Qualifying is scheduled to resume Saturday, however weather forecasts call for an even greater chance of rain.
