Jeg ends day in second round.

The recently crowned 2002 NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion started the final race of the season from the No. 13 qualifying position.

Jeg defeated fellow Ohio Pro Stock driver Ron Krisher in the opening round. The Jeg's Mail Order Chevy Cavalier left the starting line first and never looked back. Jeg crossed the finish line with a winning run of 6.860 at 201.22 mph.

"Our goal going into the first round was to get lane choice for the second round and we accomplished it," said Jeg.

In the second round Jeg lined up next to Gene Wilson. The advantage went to Wilson by .026 seconds (.409 to .435). The hole shot win went to the leading "rookie of the year" candidate by .0081 at the stripe.

"We have had a great year and everyone on the team did a great job. We will go to the awards ceremony as a team tomorrow night and celebrate what we accomplished as a team," explained Jeg.
