Troy looks to improve

Troy Coughlin drove his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier to a 6.898 at 200.00 mph. He landed in the No. 18 position and will have three opportunities to improve before the field is set for race day. Troy was a mere .004 seconds shy being in the quick sixteen on his first attempt.

"We have some room for improvement," said Troy. " We made a straight run from point A to B and that's a good way to start the weekend."

In the second qualifying session the yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier was glowing under the lights. Troy ran a 6.893 at 200.59 mph. His run was an improvement and he remained just south of the bump spot.

"We will work on improving tomorrow (Saturday)," explained Troy. "We will spend a lot of time as a group before we make another run and put our best foot forward."
