Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals

It's turning into another weather affected weekend for NHRA as the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals as there were numerous rain delays on Friday and already one - albeit a short one - so far today. The forecast is for possible thunderstorms this afternoon and tomorrow's forecast is looking very ominous from noon onwards. The Top Alcohol Funny Cars completed their first (of two scheduled) qualifying session yesterday, but only three pairs - six cars - of the 24 entered, were able to run before rain shut down proceedings for nearly six hours. When the track was finally dry enough to run, at 9:00 pm, there was only time for the nitro cars, Funny Car and Top Fuel to run.

So far today, sportsman cars ran throughout the morning, with one short rain timeout during Top Sportsman eliminations, but all the Top Alcohol cars got to run. There is one more session scheduled for the dragsters, but the Funny Cars are done until eliminations start. With only 14 cars entered, and all of them having a timeslip, it was an easy decision to save the racers money and the event organizers some valuable track time.

We've posted photos and captions from the final qualifying session and the first round of eliminations from the Bandimere Speedway NHRA Lucas Oil Series "Thunder On The Mountain" event that ran last weekend. Scroll down to see them. We'll have the semi-final photos and wrapup from the event posted tomorrow.
