Scott Goodyear:  #52 Thermos Grill2Go

Position: 17th Speed: 221.677 mph Time: 40.5997 seconds

Goodyear (on Friday practice): "We were not as quick today as I would have liked, but I am not counting out a front-row result for tomorrow. We are going to sit down and look at some things tonight to see if we can pick up some speed for tomorrow. We drew number fifteen in the qualifying order, so that's probably not too bad."
