Team Jeg's - Friday Qualifying Summary

John Coughlin and his yellow and black Jeg's Chevy S-10 was the first team machine to take on the track. John ran a 7.686 at 175.94 mph and ended up in the No. 12 spot after the first of four scheduled qualifying sessions.

"It feels great to get back behind the wheel again. I am really excited to have a solid weekend and we are off to a good start," said John. "We need to focus on the first 60-feet and the rest will improve."

During the first qualifying session Mike Coughlin and his Jeg's machine ran a 7.687 at 175.89 mph. The run put Mike in the No. 13 position.

"We made a solid run in both of the Jeg's Chevy S-10's right out of the trailer. We have a baseline to tune from and that should help us all weekend," explained Mike.

In the second session John ran a 7.657 at 176.24 mph and Mike ran a 7.670 at 176.65 mph. They ended up in the No. 8 and No. 13 position respectfully.

"We are making a lot of progress. Both of our Jeg's Chevy S-10's have been very predictable," said John.

"I am looking forward to improving tomorrow and moving this Jeg's S-10 closer to the top of the page," commented Mike.
