* Billy Boat recorded the fifth fastest lap in practice today for the Atlanta 500 Classic presented by MCI. His fastest lap was 24.840 seconds (223.188 mph). Mark Dismore was quickest with 24.689 seconds (224.553 mph).

* Billy Boat about practice: "We still have a little bit of work to do yet. I'll tell you one thing about this track; the draft is big here. You have to be careful not to fool yourself and concentrate on getting a fast lap on your own. Qualifying is on ly one car at a time. You can't use the draft to your advantage then."

* Tomorrow's qualifying will be broadcast live on Speedvision at 6 p.m. (EDT). TNN will broadcast Saturday's race at 9 p.m. (EDT).
