Not to be out done, Frank Gugliotta received some accolades of his own, as he snagged the MPH side of the track record on the first run of the day with a 214.01 run. His best qualifying shot of the day gave him the No. 2 spot, as he put his Ford Escort in the show with a 6.521, 213.20 lap.

Tony Gillig capped off the top three by taking the third spot on a 6.533,212.56 shot.

John Montecalvo and Steve Spiess represented the Chevy Cobalt camp by rounding out the top five. Montecalvo will ride a 6.537,212.43 into tomorrow's qualifying rounds, while Spiess can rest easy on a solid 6.541,212.69 pass.
