Warren Johnson will start sixth in Brainerd

On the strength of a 6.911-second, 199.49 mph pass made on Friday evening, Warren Johnson qualified his GM Performance Parts Grand Am sixth for Sunday's final eliminations of the Lucas Oil Nationals in Brainerd,MN. Although the hot and humid conditions on Saturday seemed to preclude any real challenges for the top positions, Johnson and his crew explored the limits of performance on the new Brainerd International Raceway racing surface.

"Overall, we're not that far off. Our GM Performance Parts Grand Am was consistently as fast as anyone in the back half of the race track, so we're where we need to be power-wise. This morning, we thought the track would be a little better than it was, so we went for the throat. We ended up being a little too aggressive with the set-up, and as a result, blew the tires off. We calmed it down this afternoon, which gave us a direction to go in, so we'll be in good shape for tomorrow. "
