Connolly Posts Best of 6.728 on Hot Pacific Raceways Track

SEATTLE, July 21, 2006 -- Dave Connolly was satisfied with a number three starting position after two qualifying sessions in the 102-degree heat Friday as the Schuck's Auto Supply Nationals got underway at Pacific Raceways.

"We went into this weekend doing a little experimenting with the tune-up," said Connolly after driving the SKULL Gear Chevy Cobalt to a best of 6.728 seconds at 206.07 mph in the evening run. "We left a little bit at the starting line but we're still third and will be in the show Sunday. And we get two more runs Saturday."

Connolly is coming off a win in Denver Sunday. Temperatures in the mile-high city reached 100, 103 and 103 degrees last week.
