Dave Connolly Eighth after First Day at Englishtown

ENGLISHTOWN, N.J., June 16, 2006 -- Dave Connolly and the SKULL GEAR Pro Stock Chevy Cobalt team weren't impressed with the 6.670-second run at a career-best 207.94 mph during Friday night qualifying at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park.

"We didn't make a good run," said the Elyria, Ohio native. "We blew the tires off the car in low gear. It wasn't a pretty run. We thought we were capable of running a low 6.65."

He ran 6.653 seconds -- his career best time -- at Chicago last week.

He is eighth, however, with two more sessions scheduled Saturday to set the field for Sunday's K&N Filters SuperNationals.
