INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 31, 2003 -- A steady rain, with more expected Monday, forced NHRA to postpone completion of the 49th annual U.S. Nationals until Sept. 5-7 at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

Just two of a scheduled five qualifying runs were completed after rain cancelled Friday night's first attempt.

Cruz Pedregon and the Advance Auto Parts Funny Car team didn't mind. They had problems on both runs and their best time, 5.340 seconds at 191.81 mph, put them 19th overall. They now have three more attempts -- one session on Friday and two on Saturday -- before Sunday's completion of the U.S. Nationals.
