Troy is no. 6 after day one

Troy ran a 7.403 at 187.83 mph to start the weekend. He landed in the No. 19 qualifying position by the conclusion of the first of four scheduled qualifying sessions.

"It isn't really how we wanted to start the weekend," commented Troy. "Both our cars were set up the same and they both responded the same, which our team views as a good thing."

In the second session Troy and his yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier took charge. He posted a 7.259 at 189.44 mph and took over the No. 6 qualifying position.

"We made some changes to the set up on both cars and they both responded well," said Troy. "It is nice to be sitting where we are after the first day of qualifying. We are headed in the right direction and that is a great feeling."
