Fike Earns Menards Pole On DuQuoin Mile Dirt

(DuQUOIN, Ill. - September 6, 2010) - Galesburg, Illinois driver AJ Fike, in his own No. 10 RFMS-Liberty Village Ford, earned the Menards Pole presented by Ansell Monday afternoon at the DuQuoin State Fairgrounds in DuQuoin, Illinois. Fike edged veteran Ken Schrader for the pole in the final moments of qualifying, circling the historic one-mile dirt track in 33.130 seconds for an average speed of 108.663 mph.

"Everyone on the RFMS-Liberty Village Ford has been working hard all day," said Fike, who won the pole at DuQuoin in '07 and '09. "We've been pretty good all day here in practice. We made a few adjustments for qualifying and they worked. That's two poles in a row for us in here in DuQuoin. We've been really good here in the past. We've just come up a little short every time. Hopefully today will be our day."
