POLE UALIFYING NOTES
BOB SCHACHT (#64 Engineered Components Ford) -- We ran 194.7 this morning, but it was a lot cooler. I think we ran OK -- we'll take it. If I had this car on the other side of the fence (Winston Cup) I'd really be happy! We've had this car for a while. We keep rebuilding and refining it, and it keeps getting better all the time. But today, it was all in the motor. Peter Guild of ProMotor built it. He does the Winston Cup engines for Ricky Rudd and Todd Bodine, and he did the engines for Richard Petty a few years ago. I think we've got a good chance for the race, if nothing happens. We've got to go back and change everything, and just hope that keeps us at the front.
JEFF PURVIS (#1 Delco Remy Chevrolet) -- We thought we might have something for (Bob) Schacht. I thought I could run about a .50 (46.50) and we did about that (46.447). We ran a bit quicker than what I thought we could run, but Bob was real strong. This will be a good race car. We're going to work on our race setup now. Hopefully, we'll have something for him (Schacht) in the race.
TIM STEELE (#16 H.S. Die Ford) -- It would be nice to win the pole, but there are a lot of good cars to go yet. Our qualifying in the past has been fair, but now it looks like we'll have a real good car for the race. This car's going to be perfect for the race. I think I have a better chance of winning this race.
BILL VENTURINI (#25 Venturini Racing Chevrolet) -- I ran three miles per hour faster than I did last year and I'm still fifth -- just where I qualified last year. You figure it out. I've got to give Schacht credit -- he's been a rocket since he's gotten here. I told him, 'Go for it.' If he can run it, God bless him, I'm happy for him. I'm glad an ARCA regular is on the pole, to show them we can run. I didn't run too bad, 191. It's all going to shake out in the race anyway. In victory lane they don't care who's on the pole.
DAYTONA ARCA 200 NOTES
A victory in the Daytona ARCA 200 by either JEFF PURVIS or TIM STEELE would allow them to join a select group of drivers who have won ARCA superspeedway races in three consecutive seasons. The only drivers to have accomplished the feat are Davey Allison (1983-85), Grant Adcox (1986-88) and Charlie Glotzbach (1990-92).
