Rain Out Puts Schrader In 38Th

13801Jpg
LONG POND, Pa. - Qualifying for Sunday’s Pocono 500 was cancelled on Friday afternoon due to water seeping through the track’s surface, so the field for the Winston Cup race will now be set on owner’s points. Ken Schrader and the “M&M’s”® Pontiac will roll off from 38th place on Sunday. Sterling Marlin will sit on the pole.

Although it rained Thursday and early Friday morning, the weather had cleared up and the sun was out by mid-day. But track officials could not clear up the water problem – particularly in Turn 3 and on the frontstretch – in time for qualifying to begin. All track activity was cancelled on Friday.

“It’s a shame,” Schrader said. “I really would have liked to have qualified the little “M&M’s”® Pontiac here today. We usually have a pretty good run at Pocono, and since we brought back the same car that did so well here last year, I was looking forward to qualifying. Now, we’ll just have to fight our way through a pack of traffic on Sunday.”
