MOHNTON, Pa. (AP) _ Rain forced the postponement of the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals on Sunday at Maple Grove Raceway, with the final eliminations pushed back to Monday.

The start of the eliminations was delayed nearly two hours before the first round of Top Fuel was completed. Midway through the opening round of Funny Car eliminations the rains resumed, forcing NHRA officials to postpone the race.
