Jeg Moves Up To The No. 3 Spot

Jeg began the second day of qualifying looking to improve from the No. 6 position. He posted a run of 6.806 at 203.06 mph in his Jeg's Mail Order Chevy Cavalier during the opening session yesterday (Thursday).

The two-time NHRA Pro Stock champion and the men in yellow and black answered the call. Jeg laid down a run of 6.784 at 202.7 mph. The run was good enough to move up to the No. 3 position.

"We learned a lot from the run we made yesterday and applied what we learned for our second run," said Jeg. "The conditions were almost identical to what we had yesterday (Thursday) and we expected to run a 6.78 yesterday. Tomorrow morning should give us the best qualifying conditions of the weekend, so we know we have to be on our game and continue to improve."

There are two remaining qualifying sessions until the field is set. The third and fourth qualifying sessions are schedule for Saturday at 10:30 and 2:30 PM (PT) respectively.
