Jeg Looks Solid On Day One

In the first qualifying session Jeg posted an impressive run of 6.852 at 201.94 mph in the left lane to start the weekend off on a good note. The JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier was the 3rd quickest car of the first of the four scheduled qualifying sessions.

"It is always a good feeling to make a solid run right out of the trailer," said Jeg. "It can set the tone for the weekend."

The reigning NHRA POWERade Pro Stock champion began the second session looking to improve. The men in yellow and black delivered in front of a packed house at Pacific Raceways. Jeg laid down a run of 6.829 at 202.39 mph and slipped to the No. 5 spot.

"We missed our spot on the track a little in the second session," commented Jeg. "We improved over our previous run. There is more left in our set up and that's encouraging after we made two solid runs today (Friday)."
