NHRA Pro Stock Truck
Team Jeg's - Saturday Qualifying Summary

The second and final day of qualifying took place today. John Coughlin began the day sitting in the No. 8 position and Mike Coughlin is the No. 13 spot.

During the third qualifying session both of the Jeg's Mail Order Chevy S-10s improved their qualifying times. John ran a 7.656 at 175.62 mph and landed in the No. 13 spot. Mike moved to the No. 10 position with his run of 7.653 at 175.84 mph.

"We needed to be a little more aggressive during the third session. The important thing is that we improved and we are moving in the right direction with our Jeg's Chevy S-10," said John.

"I really thought that we would have seen a bigger improvement then what we did out of my Jeg's machine during the third session. The S-10 responded well to the changes that we made and we could have been more aggressive. We are making good decisions and we just need to continue until late Sunday afternoon," explained Mike.

In the final session John ran a 7.664 at 175.43 mph. John landed in the No. 15 spot and will go head-to-head against Randy Daniels.

"My Jeg's S-10 moved around a little through fourth and fifth gear. We put the wing up more before the run to settle things down track. I am looking forward to the first round," said John.

Mike laid down a 7.666 at 174.80 mph. He ended up in the No. 11 position. Mike will battle Don Smith for the win light in the opening round tomorrow.

"We are making continuing to make solid runs and tomorrow should be a better day. The rain looks like it will not be a factor. We will focus on putting one of our Jeg's Chevy S-10s in the winner's circle," said Mike.
