The rain squalls that have hit the Indianapolis area where the MAC Tools US Nationals are being held have carried over into Monday (US time), forcing officials to postpone the event until next weekend.
The Nationals – the final event before the NHRA Full Throttle Series Countdown – will resume on Saturday with a further two runs for each competitor before eliminations on Sunday, September 9.
The $100,000 to win NHRA Funny Car Traxxas Shootout (a race within a race) will be held as the feature event on the Saturday program.
“The persistent weather has affected the racing surface and we have chosen to make the tough decision to postpone the race until next weekend,” said Graham Light, NHRA senior vice president racing operations. “We are planning to run the remainder of the event next weekend on Saturday and Sunday.”
