Troy Expects To Improve On Day Two

Troy Coughlin opened the weekend by running a 6.898 at 201.13 mph. He landed in the No. 19 spot by the end of the first of four scheduled qualifying sessions.

"We made a straight run from A-to-B in the opening session," said Coughlin. "Our opportunity is in the first 330-feet to make a real improvement."

In the second session Troy ran 6.878 at 201.70 mph. He ultimately stayed in the No. 19 position.

"The second session the car just did not respond to the changes we made," commented Coughlin. "Don't get me wrong, we improved over our prior time. We were just expecting a lot more."

The two remaining qualifying sessions are scheduled for 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM respectively.
