NHRA U.S. Nationals postponed; to be completed next weekend

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.

Scott Geoffrion and Hurley Blakeney's Nitro Fish Ford Escort ZX2 Pro Stock team didn't mind because they were 29th in a huge, 46-car field. Now they will have three more attempts to move into the top 16.

There will be one qualifying session on Friday and two on Saturday -- plus the Budweiser Shootout for Funny Cars -- before Sunday's completion of the U.S. Nationals.
