Scelzi sets track speed record, qualifies no. 5.

SONOMA, Calif. (Aug. 1, 2003) - Gary Scelzi proved once again that the Oakley Time Bomb Dodge Stratus is a rocket, as he set the track speed record at 318.92 mph tonight in the second round of qualifying, while claiming the No. 5 spot with a 4.849-second elapsed time.

Scelzi's first qualifying run today was also strong, coming in at 5.035/304.25, which was good for No. 4 at that time.

"Outstanding," he smiled. "Last weekend we qualified No. 1, this weekend we're right in the hunt. We're running well. We made two good runs again, top speed, love that to death. Dodge people, can't thank you enough. Oakley, we're going to try to get you a win. We're just going to try to stay consistent tomorrow and do the best we can with what we've got to work with and what we've got to work with right now is a lot."
