Seeping Water Postpones Qualifying at Norwalk, Ohio
Decision Comes after Five-hour Delay

NORWALK, Ohio, June 27, 2008 -- It did not rain in Norwalk, Ohio, Friday, but the water seeping through the 1320-feet of asphalt and the long shutoff area prevented completion of the first round of Pro qualifying in the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals. Five hours and 20 minutes later, the water wouldn't go away and clean up was stopped.

Justin Humphreys and the orange-clad RaceRedi Dodge team were sent to the pit area twice and recalled each time before NHRA officials and the track clean-up crew abandoned plans to complete the session at 9:20 p.m. Pro Stock Motorcycle was the only category to complete its first run. Seven Pro Stock cars ran before action was halted.

The seepage was caused by more than 13 inches of rain that fell in the Norwalk area in the past week.

Humphreys now has two attempts to get into the 16-car starting line-up for Sunday's eliminations.
