HOT TEMPS COOL DOWN COLORADO TEAM

Las Vegas, Nev. - The usrecognition.com Pro Stock Dodge team is ready for tomorrow's final qualifying sessions after a conservative 6.815 second elapsed time capped off day number one of the Summitracing.com NHRA Nationals contested on "The Strip" at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

After an off-pace 6.86 second elapsed time during the first qualifying session, Gruninger's crew made several wholesale changes to the usrecognition.com Pro Stock Dodge, hoping the mile-high city based team could produce a good base-line fun for tomorrow's final qualifying sessions which will set the 16-car field. The team succeeded by improving their efforts by 0.054 seconds. Gruninger's 6.815 ET was 18th quickest in the session and bodes well for tomorrow's make-it-or-break-it qualifying.

"Everything that could go wrong did go wrong in that first session today," noted the 23-year old sophomore NHRA Pro Stock driver from Denver, Colo. "It started in the burnout and went downhill from there. We made a gear change, and backed it down a little bit in attempt to get down this hot track and put a .81 on the board. We expected something slower, so we're on the right pace for tomorrow's final sessions."
