Troy Coughlin just south of the bump.

Troy Coughlin started the second day of qualifying on the outside looking in. He rocketed off the starting line and posted a 6.876 at 200.11 mph and landed in the No. 16 position by the close of the session.

"Being able tune off of my brother's (Jeg Jr) car really helped us a lot," said Troy. "We made a nice solid run."

In the final session Troy was bumped out before he ran. He laid down a run of 6.893 at 200.26 mph and moved up to the No. 15 spot before eventually being bumped out of the field.

"We just made too many errors," explained Troy. "You just cannot be any where close to the last five spots going into the final qualifying session. If you are you are playing with fire."
