Jeg Coughlin looks to pick up where he left off

In the opening qualifying session Jeg Coughlin Jr and his yellow and black JEG'S Mail Order Chevy Cavalier rocketed to a run of 6.860 at 200.68 mph to start the weekend. The run was good enough for the No. 5 position.

The second session gave teams almost identical condition to the opening qualifying session. Jeg laid down a 6.855 at 200.44 mph. His run was an improvement over his first qualifying effort and he slipped to the No. 8 spot.

"We felt like we were in the ballpark after our first run," explained Jeg. "We made a couple of minor changes going into the second session that we thought would have translated into a bigger improvement for us. We have solid data on each lane and that should help us tune better tomorrow."
