Qualifying Notes:

Jeremy Clements crashed coming out of Turn 2 during his qualifying run making hard contact with the outside wall.  Clements was locked in to the field and will have to go to a backup car and start from the back.

Eric McClure did not make a qualifying run but was locked into the field.

DNQ: Dexter Stacey  - During his warm-up lap Stacy spun in Turn 3 but was allowed to start his qualifying run from scratch as he hadn't yet taken the green flag. Stacey was tracking to be the slowest of the qualifiers up to that point when he lost the car on his second qualifying lap and hit the wall ending his chances at making the race.
