After two of four qualifying sessions:

GARY SCELZI, OAKLEY TIME BOMB DODGE STRATUS R/T FUNNY CAR, posted two strong runs today, a 4.869/320.43 in today's first session, and a 4.871/318.24 in the second, placing him No. 6 in the field. Scelzi and the team are pleased with these results considering the problems the team had the last two races getting down the track. It was also to everyone's relief that these two sessions even took place under warm, dry conditions after rain had been threatened all day.

"Favorite word: consistency. I went down the track two times in a row, which didn't used to be a big deal for us. As of late, it's been a problem. Right down the middle of the race track, right in the groove. We tried to stand on it a little bit for tonight, but the track was actually better than our clutch was, which made the clutch slip further and it slowed us down just a little bit. But that's fine. Tonight's kind of dreamland, and we're not sure where we're at yet, with the new clutch and the new supercharger. We are running the new stuff. It made two consistent runs, so we're very, very happy."
