Day ends in first round for Troy

Troy Coughlin started race day from the No. 7 qualifying position and faced off against Kurt Johnson in the opening round. The Jeg's Mail Order entry left the starting line first by .003 seconds (.021 to .024) and was ahead at the 60-foot clock.

The yellow and black Jeg's machine made an aggressive move to the left before the 330-foot clock, which hurt the overall number for the run. Troy posted a losing 6.826 at 202.67 mph.

"The car spun pretty hard when we launched from the starting line," commented Troy. "We will head back to the shop and get ready for our return trip to Maple Grove Raceway."
