WEST ALLIS, WI Bobby Dotter, driver of the People Against Drugs/Puma Tools Chevrolet, qualified 19th for Saturday's GNC Live Well 200 at the Milwaukee Mile. Dotter's fast lap was 30.606 seconds, which translates to 117.624 on the flat one-mile oval.

"We made a lot of changes on the truck in this morning's practice session," Dotter said. "But they never really improved the performance of the truck from what we saw in the open test sessions on Thursday. We changed brakes, spindles, and a lot of the components under the truck. The team definitely worked hard today, but we didn't get the jump in speed we expected."

Dotter says driver comfort will be an issue, particularly on the long runs in race trim.

"The driver that can keep his truck consistent on the long run will have the best chance to run near the front," he said. "We have a good consistent truck that should race very well."

The GNC Live Well 200 from The Milwaukee Mile will get the green shortly after 2:30 pm ET and will be broadcast live on ESPN. The race can be heard on MRN Radio affiliates nationwide as well as XM Satellite Radio.
