Jeg is looking forward to race day.

Jeg Coughlin Jr and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier started the second and final day of qualifying sitting in the No. 12 position.

In the third session Jeg posted a 6.777 at 203.40 mph. The run was the 10th quickest and 6th fastest of the session.

"We were really looking to make a move back into the top five qualifying positions," said Jeg. "We made a lot of changes to the car for the third session. The data we gained should help us on race day."

In the final session Jeg ran a 6.829 at 202.58 mph. The run was very competitive for the session and team is up beat going into race day.

Jeg will face off against Bruce Allen in the opening round. The match up will put a Chevy Cavalier and a Pontiac Grand Am into the ring.

"We made it into the field and that is the first goal," explained Jeg. "We have learned a lot over the four qualifying sessions and look to be a threat on race day."
