Nashville, Tenn. - October 1 - Mooresville, N.C.'s Freddie Query took a huge step towards an unprecedented third consecutive win in the Greased Lightning All American 400 when he grabbed the Bud Pole position for the 19th annual running of the Slim Jim All Pro Series, NASCAR touring event at Nashville Speedway USA. Driving his RaceCar College Chevrolet Monte Carlo, the 1998 Slim Jim All Pro Series Champion toured the 0.596-mile oval in a time of 18.669 seconds at an average speed of 114.928 mph to earn his second pole position of 1999 and his second pole position for this race. It was also Query's seventh career Bud Pole position in Slim Jim All Pro Series, NASCAR Touring competition.
