Jeg is ready to be threat on race day.

The two-time NHRA Pro Stock champion is focused on winning the Mac Tools Gatornationals

In the third qualifying session Jeg broke a transmission and was forced to shut off. The morning session on Saturday is considered among many to be the single most important session of the weekend.

"We needed to make a good run in the morning," said Jeg. "We have probably the most aggressive maintenance program in our class and sometimes things just happen."

In the final qualifying session Jeg fired off an impressive run of 6.837 at 201.79 mph. It was the sixth quickest run of the session.

"We will be ready on race day when it counts the most," commented Jeg. "Our team typically rises to the occasion on race day."

Jeg will start from the No. 13 position. The reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion will face off against Terry Adams in the opening round.
