Coughlin Jr. picked up the No. 1 qualifier during the fourth session on Saturday. He also had the provisional lead on Friday night after the first two sessions.
“Rickie Jones (crew chief) was going for it,” Coughlin Jr. stated. “From the time I let the clutch out this thing was just singing. It was singing through every one of the four gear changes and fifth gear was great and just hummed it down through there. I could tell by the tone on his voice on the radio that not only did we run well but kept the No. 1 qualifier.”
