Capps vs. Cruz Pedregon; TJ vs. Scotty Cannon on Sunday

READING, Pa. -- Ron Capps had two 4.894-second elapsed times and Tommy Johnson was consistent during the day and not-so-consistent at night during qualifying for Sunday's Lucas Oil Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in nearby Mohnton.

Capps' two runs came at night -- the second the result of a four-hour rain delay Saturday -- and put the Green Skoal Racing Camaro into the 10th spot. Pedregon, meanwhile, had a best of 4.863 at 310 mph to place seventh.

"We have a daytime tune-up figured out," Johnson commented following his 4.925-second, 310.12-mph performance in the Blue Skoal Racing Camaro in Saturday's first session. "We ran 4.951 (Friday) but weren't able to get down the track in either night session. Fortunately for us, the race will be run during the day."

Johnson's foe, Scotty Cannon, was fourth with a 4.829 at 316.96. That run came under the lights.

Whit Bazemore was No. 1 with a 4.806 at 318 mph.
