Team JEG'S began the second and final day of qualifying focused on improving. Both of the JEG'S Mail Order Chevrolet Cavaliers came out swinging in the third qualifying session.

Troy made the biggest improvement. He marched all the way up to the No. 4 position from the No. 11 spot.

"We made a clean run from start to finish in the third session. The Jeg's machine went straight from start to finish. We were a little aggressive through the top of low gear and we know that we could have made a better run," said Troy.

Jeg also improved over his previous qualifying time. He ran a 6.881 at 199.58 mph and moved up to the No. 7 slot.

"The car moved around a little through the top of second gear and then settled down quickly. From that point the Jeg's Chevy Cavalier rocketed down to the big end. We are moving in the right direction," explained Jeg.

Jeg ran a 6.886 at 199.46 mph during the final session. He moved into the No. 13 position.

"We need to work on the first 60-feet of the track and everything else will fall into place. Tomorrow will be a new day and we will be ready," stated Jeg.

Troy made another picture perfect run. He crossed the finish line beams with a 6.857 at 200.17 mph and ended up in the No. 5 spot.

"This is the best string of runs that we have put together on my Jeg's Chevrolet Cavalier since we got it. The guys are doing a great job and everyone is focused on making the best possible run every chance we get," explained Troy.

In the opening round Jeg will face off against Mark Pawuk. Troy will go head-to-head against Warren Johnson. Lane choice goes to Troy. Both of these match ups are strong and there will plenty of eyes watching them.
