With one day and one qualifying session under their belts John and Mike Coughlin returned to Pomona Raceway with improvement on their minds. John was resting in the No. 15 spot and Mike was on the outside looking in from the No. 17 position.

John improved during the second of four scheduled qualifying sessions. He ran a 7.562 at 177.39 and took over the No. 8 spot.

"We learned a lot yesterday and we were confident that we would make a big improvement during the second session," said John.

Mike also improved over his previous qualifying time. He ran a 7.556 at 177.49 mph and jump over his brother to take the No. 7 spot.

"We now have a very firm baseline to tune from," commented Mike. "I think that we will see our trend of improving continue tomorrow."
