NASCAR officials Tuesday evening announced that activities scheduled for Friday at New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon -- including Bud Pole Award Qualifying for Sunday's NASCAR Winston Cup New Hampshire 300 -- have been cancelled.

The 43-car field for Sunday's 300-lap event, the 27th in the 36-race season, will be set according to the 2001 NASCAR Winston Cup Series rule book.

"Our country has experienced a terrible tragedy today," NASCAR president Mike Helton said. "All of the NASCAR community offers our sincerest sympathies to all those who have suffered losses. We will continue to monitor and evaluate this situation and make the appropriate decisions as the week progresses."

As of Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday track activities at NHIS remain unchanged.
