In the third round of qualifying Kopp ran a 7.718 / 174.30 mph to assume the eighth position. Kopp will meet Winston Champion Bob Panella in Round 1.

"I am very excited to be part of the Winston Showdown," said Kopp. "I would have liked to qualify a little higher but we will take it. This is a great event and we are proud to be part of it.

"This Speedco truck just keeps getting better and better. Since St. Louis our performance has steadily picked up. We are very happy about that. We have improved with very lap. If we keep picking at it, soon we will be back where we need to be. I think we will fair pretty well tomorrow, and I can't wait to get started."

Eliminations at the Second Annual Winston "No Bull" Showdown take place on Sunday July 9 at 11:00AM EST.
