Dede,
Did Flying Lizards ever discuss why the #44 car is out of pace with the others? Even todays Qualifying it's way off the pace.

On the blog...the #44 used the session for set up...
@ 1:41 pm - No. 44 pits for a damper change on the front and fuel.
@ 2:05 - Checkered flag - 10 minutes to qualifying. In the No. 44, Seth Neiman will qualify but will use the session for setup.
