Troxel opens qualifying in ninth place

Indianapolis, Friday:  "It felt good to make a nice, clean run right out of the box," Melanie Troxel said Friday after turning in a 4.231-second elapsed time at 293.60 mph in the new R2B2 Racing Dodge R/T Funny Car.  The time was ninth quickest as qualifying began for Monday's Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at O'Reilly Raceway Park.

Crew chief Brian Corradi felt the same way. "It definitely was nice to get down the track on that run," he said.

"Brian planned to make some changes and this may be the beginning of a new direction," Troxel added. 

She has two qualifying runs Saturday and two more Sunday.
