Jeg and team focus on Saturday.

Jeg Coughlin Jr started off the weekend by running a 6.760 at 203.86 mph. The run was good enough to put him and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier into the No. 4 spot after the first qualifying session.

"It always is nice to make a solid run right out of the trailer," said Jeg. "As good as the conditions are, we need to just keep improving with every run."

Jeg did not improve in the second session. The reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion slipped to the No. 12 position.

"We needed to make a better run Friday night," said Jeg. "The car moved around a lot during the run. I knew we needed the data so I stayed with it."
