ERIE, Colo. (August 21, 2004) Eric Holmes of Escalon, Calif. scored his first Bud Pole Award of the season in NASCAR AutoZone Elite Division, Southwest Series competition Saturday afternoon at Colorado National Speedway in Erie, Colo. Holmes toured the 3/8-mile paved oval in 16.358 seconds/82.528 mph. Following Holmes in qualifying were Jeff Jefferson, Rip Michels, Craig Raudman, and Kevin Clark rounding out the top five qualifiers.

18 drivers qualified for one of the 26 starting positions in the United Power/Touchstone Energy "150" falling qualifying with four provisional starting positions going to Burney Lamar, Greg Voigt, Doug McCoun, and Todd Souza. Trevor Morrical, Bob Lyon, Justin Martz, Nick Joanides, Danny Mientka, Darrell LaMoure, and Richard Johnson will all have to race their way into the show via a 15-lap non-qualifiers event that will see the top four drivers transfer to the feature event.
