During the two practices the team overcame an oil leak and a problem with the transmission. Eric Time Trialed at 28.603, which was about two seconds off the fast time. The weekend in a USAC Coors Light Silver Bullet Car ended during the 15 Lap Qualifying race when the engine let go. Eric enjoyed the challenge of the USAC Car which is very different than the NASCAR modified he is used to. This however did not end Eric's racing schedule for the weekend.
