WJ Sits Fourth Midway Through Vegas Qualifying

GM Performance Parts Pontiac GXP racer Warren Johnson opened his qualifying effort for the SummitRacing.com Nationals in fine fashion on Friday, making two very good passes down The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After opening with a solid 6.744-second effort, The Professor picked up the pace in the evening session, covering the quarter mile 6.728-seconds with the best speed in the class at 206.07 mph to sit fourth midway through qualifying.

"All things considered, those were two pretty decent runs. We were using a completely new engine combination, and we were pretty enthused by today's results. In addition, we believe that once we get it settled down, there should be more left in it.

"In addition, we're still experiencing a learning curve with our GM Performance Parts GXP, as this is only our third race with it. Right now, our performance in the first sixty feet is not where we need to, so once we get that taken care of we should be in the great shape. All in all, not a bad first day."
