Connolly, Ron Krisher in First-round Pairing at Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 22, 2005 -- Crew chief Terry Adams was perplexed and so was driver Dave Connolly and the rest of the SKULL GEAR Chevy Cobalt Pro Stock team Saturday afternoon at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Connolly did, however, qualify solidly in the 16-car field, albeit 11th instead of in the top eight, "but we do get to race on Sunday," said Connolly of the ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals.

Connolly's 6.816-second, 200.83-mph effort sends him against Ron Krisher (No. 6, 6.844 at 201.70 mph) in the opening round.

Adams tried to get a grip on the glutch but it wouldn't respond, leaving him shaking his head. "There's something wrong," he said, "and I haven't been able to find it yet."
