Qualifying problems hit Connolly

"I probably drove it a little farther, but it was Friday night and we were ready to go. We probably would've been third or fourth if we'd gone straight down the track."

The good news, added Connolly, was "that we found the problem we had on the first run and we got good data on our second run. So we should be ready to go Saturday.

It's just disappointing right now."
