Neff will need to improve to make field

Chicago, Friday: Rookie sensation Mike Neff and the Old Spice team continued to struggle but Neff feels they will be able to pull together and get into the show tomorrow. They weren’t able to take advantage of the cooler temperatures but they are looking at taking advantage of the new qualifying rules tomorrow.

“We did the normal set-up we have when it is a night qualifying session. The conditions were better and we weren’t trying to get crazy or anything,” said the front runner for 2008 Rookie of the Year honors. “We just didn’t have enough traction that we thought it would. The plan for tomorrow is to be the quickest of the other cars. I feel good about it. It was running on all eight. We should be able to rip right down there tomorrow.”
