Jeg ends day one up beat.

After the first full day of qualifying Jeg and his JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier landed in the No. 6 position.

Jeg was forced to shut off in the first qualifying session at historic Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA. The car experienced tire shake soon after launching from the starting line.

"We just got too aggressive for the track conditions," said Jeg.

In the second qualifying session Jeg was on the outside looking in. The 33-year old second generation driver made a bold jump in his yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier when he posted a 6.812 at 202.09 mph. The run was good enough to move from the No. 25 spot all the way up to the No. 6 position.

"We made a solid run during the evening session and we knew we had to," explained Jeg. "We calmed things down and now we have a great baseline tune up to work from tomorrow (Saturday). Everyone pulled together and did their job as a team."
