Sunshine in Saturday's Forecast for Phoenix Area

The Valley of the Sun wasn't like that Friday during the opening day of qualifying for the Checkers Schuck's Nationals at Firebird Raceway. An annoying rain fell at just enough intervals to keep Justin Humphreys and the RaceRedi Motorsports Pro Stock Pontiac team -- and all the professional race teams -- playing a waiting game.

As afternoon turned into evening, the inclement weather prevailed, forcing officials to cancel the day's two scheduled qualifying rounds. With abundant sunshine predicted for the Phoenix area Saturday and Sunday, sun glasses again will be required in the Valley of the Sun.
