Cory McClenathan fourth in POWERade points after NHRA Lucas Oil Nationals,

MOHNTON, Pa. ^Ö It took an extra day to determine both the winners and POWERade point standings at the NHRA Lucas Oil Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway, just outside Reading, Pa.

Rain canceled racing on Sunday after only the first round of Top Fuel and part of the eight Funny Car pairs finished their runs. The event was completed today with Doug Kalitta winning the Top Fuel title.

Cory McClenathan, driver of the Henkelman & Baca Centennial Batteries Top Fuel Dragster, who lost in the opening round to Darrel Russell, had to sit and await the outcome of today's action to determine where he would be in the NHRA POWERade Top Fuel point standings entering the 15th annual NHRA O'Reilly Nationals presented by Pennzoil, which unfolds this weekend at Memphis (Tenn.) Motorsports Park. Professional qualifying gets underway on Friday.

After the unusual Monday eliminations, McClenathan held on to fourth place in the point standing, 67 points behind Tony Schumacher in third and five points ahead of Darrell Russell in fifth and 24 points in front of sixth place Doug Kalitta.
