Troy jumps to the no. 2 spot

Troy Coughlin and his Jeg's Mail Order Chevy Cavalier landed in the No. 2 qualifying position after two of the four scheduled qualifying sessions.

Troy was forced to lift after launching from the starting line in the opening session. The Pro Stock veteran made a solid rebound in the second session. The Jeg's Mail Order Chevy cavalier posted a run of 6.900 at 198.93 mph on a solo pass to opening the second qualifying session.

"We addressed the problem that we had in the opening qualifying session and rose to the challenge when we had to," said Troy. "That run (second session) was the straightest and smoothest run I have made for a while. We just need to stay focused as a team and keep heading in this direction."
