  • Some Qualifying Notes:
    none..yet.(7-1-2004)

  • Sadler's time disallowed - takes a provisional: Elliott Sadler's qualifying lap at 187.692 mph, which was ninth fastest in Thursday night's qualifying for the Pepsi 400, was disallowed after the rear quarterpanels were found to be too low on his #38 Ford after the session. Sadler will drop to the first provisional spot, meaning he'll start 39th on Saturday night. That moves Ricky Craven up to 38th as the last car to qualify on speed.(ThatsRacin.com)

  • Fastest Qualifier by Manufacturer::
    Chevy: #24-Jeff Gordon, 188.659, starts 1st
    Dodge: #77-Brandon Gaughan, 187.001, starts 13th
    Ford: #21-Ricky Rudd, 188.426, starts 3rd
    Pontiac: none running this week
