Jeg Ends Up No. 4

Jeg and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier started the second and final day of qualifying looking to improve from the No. 5 qualifying position.

Once again, Team JEG'S answered the call. Jeg posted an improved time of 6.804 at 202.79 mph during the third qualifying session and jumped to the No. 4 position.

"We knew we had to make a good run during the third session," said Jeg. "We had slipped from No. 5 to No. 16 by the time we got to the water box and we expected to be in that position when we ran."

In the final qualifying session Jeg launched from the starting line and was forced to shut off. Jeg remained in the No. 4 position.

"We were hoping to make a better run in the final session," said Jeg. "We will look over all of the data from both cars and get ready for race day. It is important for us to have a strong showing tomorrow. We qualified well and only made one bad run. Our team is up beat and we will be ready for race day."

Jeg will face off against Mike Edwards in the opening round. The JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier will have lane choice.
