FIRST DAY OF RACING AT TIRE KINGDOM NHRA GATORNATIONALS POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Persistent rain showers and a forecast for more showers and thunderstorms throughout the day forced NHRA officials to postpone Thursday's scheduled racing at the Tire Kingdom NHRA Gatornationals at historic Gainesville Raceway.

Weather permitting, racing will begin Friday at 8 a.m. Friday's Full Throttle Drag Racing Series qualifying sessions are scheduled for noon and 2:45 p.m. Saturday's two qualifying sessions also are set for noon and 2:45 p.m. Sunday's eliminations begin at 11 a.m.

Among the highlights of the weekend include the completion of three rounds of Pro Stock eliminations from the weather-delayed Phoenix event; NASCAR champ Kurt Busch's NHRA debut in the ultra-competitive Super Gas category in the NHRA Lucas Oil Series; the debut of NHRA's newest touring series, the NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Series; the first race of the 2010 season for the Pro Stock Motorcycle category; and plenty of exciting racing in the NHRA's marquee Full Throttle Series as points leaders Cory McClenathan (Top Fuel), John Force (Funny Car), and Mike Edwards (Pro Stock) race to build on their championship point leads.
