COMMERCE, Ga. -- Rain forced NHRA officials to postpone qualifying Friday for the NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway.

Only eight Pro Stock cars were able to make runs before consistent showers returned to the track northeast of Atlanta. Rickie Jones topped the drivers who finished with a pass of 6.596 seconds at 210.11 mph.
