Jeg is no. 9 after day one

Jeg and his yellow and black Jeg's Mail Order Chevy Cavalier rolled into The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway being the winner of the only two spring NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series events at the track.

In the first qualifying session Jeg ran a 6.977 at 198.52 mph. The run was good enough to put him in the No. 5 qualifying position and he was one of only eight drivers to break the six-second barrier in the opening session.

Jeg posted an improved run of 6.933 at 198.50 mph in the second qualifying session. He slipped to the No. 9 position and will have two additional attempts to improve his qualifying position tomorrow (Saturday).

"We made a good baseline run in the opening session," explained Jeg. "In the second session the car came out of gear in third and went right back in. Obviously that really hurt the momentum of the run early. I believe we would have posted a pretty solid number up on the board, but that's racing. We are looking forward to picking up where we left off tomorrow (Saturday). The morning session here is normally pretty good."
