Brooklyn, Michigan - When it comes to finding the front row at the Michigan Speedway Bill Ingle knows just what it takes. He has sat on the front row four times when working with drivers in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series and hopes that he has what it takes this weekend in the Craftsman Truck Series. Ingle comes to the Michigan Speedway with Craftsman Truck Series driver Rob Morgan. Morgan visited the Michigan Speedway for the first time last season starting 22nd and finishing 18th. However, this season Ingle and Morgan have combined for some great efforts qualifying in the top-ten three times, one being a front row appearance at the Texas Motor Speedway in June and Morgan's first top-ten oval finish with an eighth at the new Kentucky Speedway. Ingle feels that the #46 Acxiom/AbiliTec Ford has what it takes to capture the pole here at the Michigan Speedway. "We came here to do that, whether it can be done or not is yet to be seen. Providing we have a good aero package and everything sticks with it, we should have an opportunity to do that. Buying the fact that we have aero, horsepower and mechanical power we should be pretty close to the front." Ingle showed Thursday during the Craftsman Truck Series optional test session that he still has that front row magic at the Michigan Speedway. Rob Morgan turned a time of 41.397 with a speed of 173.926 mph, forth-fastest overall. The combination of Ingle and Morgan feel that they will have what it takes to sit on the pole. "The truck is really good, we struggled at first but we kept working on it all day and found a setup that seems to be working," Morgan commented. "This is the truck that we wrecked in Daytona and it was fast there, so I feel confident that we should be pretty strong here." The Michigan 200 from the Michigan Speedway is Saturday with green flag coverage on ESPN and MRN Radio beginning at 1:30.
