Jeg will battle from no. 16.

The reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion started the final day of qualifying sitting in the No. 13 slot.

In the third qualifying session Jeg ran a 6.958 at 198.15 mph. He slipped to the No. 15 spot.

"We really needed to make a much better run in the morning session," said Jeg after the third qualifying session. "The conditions were there and the door of opportunity was open. We just didn't get it done when we needed to."

Jeg laid down a run of 6.925 at 198.76 mph in the final qualifying session.

"We made a lot of changes going into the final session," explained Jeg. "We knew by the time we pulled into the water box during the final qualifying session we would be on the outside looking in. The run we made was good enough to get into the show."

Jeg will start race day from the No. 16 qualifying position. He will face off against Greg Anderson in the opening round.
