KJ Opens Seattle Qualifying in Seventh

Kurt Johnson and the ACDelco Cobalt Racing team opened their qualifying effort for the Schuck's Auto Supply Nationals in fine fashion on Friday, making two solid runs down the Pacific Raceways quarter-mile, recording a best effort of 6.744 seconds at 205.13 mph. However, even with their seventh place standing, within moments of returning to their pits after their second run, the ultra-competitive Johnson was already looking for ways to improve their performance during one of Saturday's final two attempts in Kent, WA.

"We made a few changes when we first got here that our race car didn't like based on what we ran today. Our first run wasn't so bad, but it didn't do anything in the back half, so we made a few changes for tonight, and even though it picked up, it could have been better.

"For example, when we compare our numbers to what the cars at the top of the page are running, we know it's a bit off. Therefore, we'll change the set-up back to where we ran fast in Englishtown and St. Louis, and see what we can do to move up during tomorrow's sessions, putting our ACDelco Cobalt in a better spot for race day."
