Rain washes out NHRA Southern Nationals

Monday - 5/19/2014, 12:01am  ET

COMMERCE, Ga. (AP) -- Rain Sunday at Atlanta Dragway forced NHRA officials to postpone the final eliminations in the Southern Nationals to Monday.

After a delay of more than eight hours, the NHRA was able to run five pairs of Top Fuel cars before racing was wiped out for the rest of the day.

Alexis DeJoria entered the final eliminations as the top Funny Car qualifier, and fellow female racer Erica Enders-Stevens led the Pro Stock field. Doug Kalitta was the No. 1 qualifier in Top Fuel, and Eddie Krawiec topped the Pro Stock Motorcycle field.
