Thanks to poor weather, and poor track conditions, the 2014 Pep Boys NHRA Carolina Nationals will finish up qualifying and racing at the Texas Motorplex this weekend when Texas simultaneously hosts the AAA Texas Fall Nationals. This means that an already packed schedule will have to serve as double duty for several race classes, including Pro Stock and Top Fuel. These round one qualifying heats will also act as elimination races for the Charlotte race.
The Burnout is offering a handy guide to who still has to race, and when those two-for-ones will be happening.
