KJ Opens Pomona Qualifying in Second

Kurt Johnson continued his string of strong runs during Thursday's first qualifying session at the Auto Club of Southern California Finals, powering through the quarter-mile in 6.699 seconds with a top speed of 206.64 mph. This placed the ACDelco Cobalt in the second position with three sessions remaining on Friday and Saturday. Even though it is early in the qualifying procedure, Johnson was encouraged by his team's continued strong performance.

"We made about four or five changes before the run to adjust for the conditions, and apparently we made some good calls. Getting down the racetrack is what it's all about right now, making sure we qualify and lock up the second spot in the POWERade points, and I think that run should do it. Now we can start working on it and see if we can pick up our ACDelco Cobalt's performance even further. It's a good start to the weekend."
