    #18-Bobby Labonte, 6th out, 193.514, starts on the Pole
    (3-28-2003)

  • Rookie of the Year Candidates: how fast were they?
    #0-Jack Sprague, 189.235, starts 31st
    #14-Larry Foyt, 188.732, starts 35th
    #16-Greg Biffle, 190.335, starts 20th
    #41-Casey Mears, 189.767, starts 26th
    #42-Jamie McMurray, 189.813, starts 24th
    #74-Tony Raines, 188.739, starts 34th.(3-28-2003)

  • Some Qualifying Notes: #14-Larry Foyt is running a purple instead of the yellow colors this week. The #83-Kerry Earnhardt car is being leased from Andy Petree Racing and Petree is in the garage helping out a bit with the team. #11-Brett Bodine lost an engine in Friday's practice and was excused from his qualifying position and will go out when the car is ready, #43-Andretti had some electrical problems and also was excused form his spot in the order and will qualify when he is ready. #30-Green possibly laid down some sort of fluid, #32-Craven went out after Green and brought it in and NASCAR said he will not be able to go back out to qualify. Looks like the #83-Earnhardt and #75-Starr cars will go home as they are the slowest cars.(3-28-2003)

  • Fastest Qualifier by Manufacturer::
    Chevy - #18-Bobby Labonte, 193.514 starts 1st
    Dodge - #12-Ryan Newman, 193.140, starts 3rd
