Troy Improves But Misses The Cut

Troy Coughlin drove his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier started the second day of qualifying from the No. 23 position.

In the third qualifying session Troy posted a 6.912 at 200.29 mph. The run was not an improvement and he remained in the No. 23 slot with one opportunity to break into the 16-car field for race day.

The final session gave Troy Coughlin the stage to make his best run of the weekend. The JEG'S mail Order Chevy Cavalier powered to a weekend best run of 6.867 at 200.92 mph. Troy was eventually bumped out of the 16-car field by the end of the session.

"We found what the car was asking for," said Troy. "It was just a little late. It was a good feeling to make such a strong run in the final session."
