May 24th, 2002 - In only his third time out in the #26 Carroll Racing Chevrolet, Ron Hornaday showed that Dr Pepper can start up front.
With a lap time of 29.655 sec. at a top speed of 182.094 m.p.h., Hornaday grabbed the poll for the Car Quest 300 at Lowe's Motor Speedway, in Charlotte N.C. this Saturday. "Right off the truck this car was great. These guys at Carroll Racing do great work with great equipment. We went out, and came back in and changed four shocks and I didn't like it, so we went back to what we came with, and.... Hey, did you know were on the pole ?"
After a seasons best finish last week, third at Nazareth Speedway, Hornaday had a positive feeling about the team effort at Carroll Racing. "I can't say enough about Dave Carroll and his organization. These guys give 110% and then they get to work."
Hornaday has been working with BAM Racing and their Winston Cup program and will be running in the 600 Sunday night as-well. "I hope to have good notes for both teams, and get positive results in the garage and out on the track."
