Rain Puts Cywinski On Pole For Lester Buildings 200

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (August 28, 2004) - The rain cleared away from The Milwaukee Mile long enough for the ASA National Tour cars to take an 80 minute practice session, but it didn't stay away long enough for qualifying to be held. ASA officials were forced to set the field partially by owner points, putting Kevin Cywinski on the pole for tomorrow's running of the Lester Buildings 200.

The starting lineup will consist of the top 34 cars lining up according to 2004 owner points, and Mike Eddy, as a past series champion, will start in the 35th spot. For those cars not already in the field, ASA and The Milwaukee Mile officials added four positions to the starting lineup and the cars starting from 36th to 40th will be gridded according to a two-lap qualifying run. The schedule has been altered to have a qualifying session tomorrow at 11:15 a.m. CDT.

This qualifying format has been used in the ASA National Tour previously at the Minnesota State Fair, and it was determined to be a fair compromise to the 51 entries, many who did not have enough owner points to automatically make the field.

The start of the Lester Buildings 200 has been pushed back to approximately 3:30 p.m. CDT

<pre> The cars automatically making the field for Sunday's race are: 1) Kevin Cywinski Chevrolet 2) Mike Garvey Chevrolet 3) Tim Sauter Ford 4) Robbie Pyle Chevrolet 5) Reed Sorenson Dodge 6) Butch Miller Chevrolet 7) Wade Day Chevrolet 8) Bryan Reffner Chevrolet 9) Casey Smith Dodge 10) Stephen Leicht Chevrolet 11) Toby Porter Chevrolet 12) Brett Sontag Chevrolet 13) Travis Kittleson Chevrolet 14) Rick Beebe Ford 15) Todd Kluever Chevrolet 16) Gregg Stewart Chevrolet 17) Pete Cozzolino Chevrolet 18) Rich Loch Chevrolet 19) Kyle Krisiloff Chevrolet 20) Kris Stump Chevrolet 21) Chad Wood Chevrolet 22) Gary Sherman Chevrolet 23) Jay Middleton Dodge 24) Jon Vig Chevrolet 25) Scott Lagasse Jr. Chevrolet 26) Trevor Stewart Chevrolet 27) Brent Downey Chevrolet 28) Jeff Streeter Chevrolet 29) Ed Brown Chevrolet 30) Ryan Unzicker Chevrolet 31) Rich Bickle Ford 32) Joey Lagano Chevrolet 33) Tim Russell Chevrolet 34) Mathias Czabok Ford 35) Mike Eddy Chevrolet - champions provisional
