The Etchells Racing Team opened their qualifying effort for the Advance Auto Parts Southern Nationals in impressive fashion on Friday night. After losing traction and slowing to a 6.460-second elapsed time on their afternoon attempt at Atlanta Dragway, the Sunoco/Matco Tools Camaro bounced back with a 4.900-second, 310.63-mph blast on Friday night, good enough for 5th midway through qualifying. This represents the Etchells crew's best Friday qualifying effort since team owner Chuck Etchells slotted 2nd at the Phoenix race this past February. The team will now look to further improve their standing during Saturday's remaining time trials.
