Gainesville, Fla. - - Jeff Gracia, Panella’s teammate, from Ontario, Calif., finished the first session on the bubble - - number 16. He was in and out of the groove on his way to a pass of 7.656 seconds at 177.65 mph.

Using some things that they learned on Panella’s run in the first session, Gracia improved in the second session. His 7.510 seconds pass at 179.21 mph landed Gracia in the third qualifying spot on the grid.

“The first run wasn’t good. We slipped around, getting in and out of the groove. We then took some things that worked on Panella’s in that first and picked it up in session two. Hopefully, we can continue the momentum tomorrow,” said Gracia.
