KOBALT MECHANICS TOOLS 500K presented by MCI WORLDCOM Atlanta Motor Speedway Hampton, Georgia Qualifying Report -- Friday, July 16, 1999

NOTES AND QUOTES:

#8 Scott Sharp, Delphi Automotive Systems/Dallara/Oldsmobile/Goodyear (Qualified 6th; 214.362 mph) "I'm really happy with how we did out there today. We ran our fastest lap of the weekend during qualifying. We've been developing a few new set-ups on the Delphi car, and I'm pleased with our progress. Tomorrow is going to be a tough race. I'm certain it will be very competitive. We're going to continue to work on our race day set-up in this evening's practice. All of us here on the Delphi team are looking to do well tomorrow.

#28 Mark Dismore, MCI WorldCom/Dallara/Oldsmobile/Goodyear (Qualified 4th; 214.669 mph) "I feel like I just won the pole. I'm so happy we ended up where we did. We had a tough practice this afternoon and I was a little worried about qualifying. We had handling problems with the primary car, and we had to make a few adjustments in between the sessions. All the crew guys on the MCI WorldCom team did a tremendous job today. I'm elated with where we're starting for tomorrow's race. It's going to be a grueling race, and I'm hoping for the best."
