Watkins Glen, NY -- Paul Wolfe, driver of the Scott Products®/Heinz USA Monte Carlo, qualified third today at Watkins Glen International Speedway for tomorrow's NASCAR Busch North Series "Little Trees" 150. "I'm really proud of this run, and what our team has been able to do in qualifying this year, given our limited schedule," Wolfe said. Although this is only Wolfe's fourth event of the season, he has earned a pole, second, and third position starts in BNS Bud Pole Qualifying.
In July, Wolfe tested his race setup in Virginia with Winston Cup Teams from Dale Earnhardt Inc. and Bill Davis Racing. "We were only about a second off from the Winston Cup lap times with a lot less horsepower, so I was pretty confident we would qualify strong," said Wolfe. Dale Quarterley took the Bud Pole Award with a time of 74.363 seconds. Brad Leighton will start on the outside pole, with Wolfe, Denny Doyle and Bryan Wall rounding out the top five spots.
Last year, the 25 year-old Milford, New York native finished third at the Glen, and he is very optimistic about this year's race. "We're really pumped up for tomorrow," Wolfe said. "We have a great car, and a couple of things that we developed for the road courses are working really well."
Saturday's race is one of the seven races to be televised on the Speed Channel, with its scheduled air date to be Monday, September 9. For more information and dates of Wolfe's events in 2002, visit the team's Web site at www.pwolfemotorsports.com.
