Jeg goes out in semi finals

Jeg and his yellow and black Jeg's Mail Order Chevy Cavalier started the 49th Annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals from the No. 2 position. The three-time event winner had his sights set on scoring his 4th victory at the most prestigious race in Drag Racing.

The reigning NHRA Pro Stock POWERade champion defeated Allen Johnson in the opening round and Gene Wilson in the second round. Jeg was beat in the semifinal round by Greg Anderson by .001 seconds at the stripe.

"We rebounded nicely as a team this weekend," said Jeg. "We were just too aggressive down low and that is what really hurt us. We had a great car after returning to Indy and we were capable of winning today. Our group will pick up the pieces and be ready for the next race at Maple Grove this coming weekend."
