Dave Connolly Qualifies 15th for 46th NHRA Winternationals

POMONA, Calif., Feb. 11, 2006 -- Perplexed is the way to describe Dave Connolly, crew chief Terry Adams and the SKULL GEAR crew Saturday afternoon when qualifying concluded for Sunday's Carquest Auto Parts Winternationals at Auto Club Track at Pomona.

Connolly's best run of the weekend, 6.721 seconds at 206.07 mph, was good enough for just the 15th starting position.

Qualifying was "about the only good news we had this weekend," said Connolly, who won this race last year. "We had problems in the first 300 feet of he track."

Adams, meanwhile, was scouring the computer readings looking for a solution to the unexpectedly slow performance.

Connolly's faces Erica Enders, No. 2 at 6.678 seconds at 206.80 mph, in the first round. Connolly and Enders each run motors built by Victor Cagnazzi Motorsports.
