Cordova, Ill. - SUMMIT FastNews - With 5,000-horsepower dragsters and mountain-motored doorslammers, one would think that a lack of power was only a remote possibility at the IHRA Summer Nationals. One would be very wrong.

Rain delays and a power failure, attributed to an undersized transformer feeding the track, pretty well wiped out Friday's racing action. By the time power was restored late Friday evening, rain had returned and race officials threw up their hands in surrender. Pro Stock and Top Fuel were ready to run, but the call never came.

As a reward for their loyalty and patience, those holding Friday's $15 ticket stubs will be admitted to Saturday's Night of Fire or Sunday's final eliminations, normally a $25 admission charge each.
