Prolong / Ohio Lottery World Nationals postponed by rain

NORWALK, Ohio -- Persistent rain showers moved into the north central Ohio region early Sunday and forced IHRA officials to postpone final eliminations in all categories for the 20th annual Prolong Super Lubricants / Ohio Lottery World Nationals presented by Ethanol Performs at the Norwalk Raceway Park. The race is the seventh of nine national events on the IHRA Snap-on Tools Championship Drag Racing Series. Eliminators in 13 categories will be completed Saturday, September 13. Gates will open at the Norwalk Raceway Park at 8 a.m., with time trials to follow. Eliminations will begin at 4 p.m. and will conclude under the lights. Top professional category qualifiers for the event include Shirley Muldowney in Top Fuel (4.895, 296.34); Floyd Cheek in Pro Stock (6.725, 206.61); Shannon Jenkins in Pro Modified (6.471, 209.20); and Jim Sickles in Alcohol Funny Car (5.905, 231.60). Before returning to Norwalk Raceway Park for the rain date, the IHRA Snap-on Tools Championship Drag Racing Series will visit Bristol (Tenn.) Dragway for the Autumn Chase Nationals, Sept. 5-7.
