Rain washes out finals at NHRA at Pacific Raceways


KENT, Wash. - Rain washed out the finals Sunday in the NHRA Northwest Nationals at Pacific Raceways.

The Top Fuel and Funny Car finals will be run in two weeks at the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals in Brainerd, Minnesota, and the Pro Stock final will shift to the following event outside Indianapolis.

Steve Torrence will face Antron Brown in Top Fuel, and Del Worsham will line up against Ron Capps in Funny Car.  In Pro Stock, Vincent Nobile will face Aaron Strong.

The Pro Stock final was moved to Indiana because Strong isn't competing in Brainerd. Nobile's Nick Mitos-owned team agreed to the postponement rather than to take a solo run in Brainerd.
