POMONA, Calif. -- The season's first winter storm in Southern California continued Saturday, forcing NHRA officials to set the fields for Sunday's Auto Club Finals based on top 10 positions and Thursday's one qualifying run.

Ron Capps and his Green Skoal Racing Funny Car start from the No. 5 berth against Del Worsham. Capps' run was 4.873 seconds at 313.80 mph while Worsham's best was 6.108 at 181.13.

Tommy Johnson Jr., at the controls of the Special Edition Skoal Racing Camaro, benefitted from his No. 8 position in points and was added to the field in the No. 15 spot. He was 17th after the one session. He meets Dean Skuza, No. 2 at 4.833, 302.69.

This is the 23rd and final NHRA POWERade event of the season.

Rain washed out Friday's single qualifying run and the two planned for Saturday.
