MOHNTON, Pa. – NHRA officials cancelled the first two rounds of qualifying at the 32nd annual Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway on Friday after rain and persistent mist.

The Dodge NHRA Nationals is the third race of the NHRA Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship, NHRA’s six-race playoffs that will decide the champions.

Officials consistently worked throughout the day to dry the track, but as the temperature dropped and misting continued, racing for the day was called at 4:25 p.m.

NHRA Mello Yello Series qualifying is set to begin as scheduled on Saturday at 11:15 a.m.
