Justin Humphreys qualifies 16th at NHRA Winternationals

POMONA, Calif., Feb. 13, 2010 -- Justin Humphreys wasn't sure what to expect from his Pontiac GXP Pro Stock entry when qualifying began Thursday for Sunday's 50th Kragen O'Reilly Winternationals.

On his final attempt Saturday, he put the car into the No. 16 starting berth with a solid 6.650-second time at 209.10 mph, allowing him to smile and add a sigh of relief.

"We struggled," said the driver from Monrovia, Md. "We weren't able to get in any (pre-season) testing, but (Pro Stock icon) Bob Glidden got everything on the same page and we were happy to put the car in the show."

It doesn't matter to Humphreys' team that his first-round match is against No. 1 qualifier Mike Edwards, who posed best of 6.578 seconds at 211.00.J

"The people at Roush-Yates Racing prepped things for us and we are looking forward to moving on," he concluded.
