Larry did not make the field for the Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500, this weekend's Nextel Cup event at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His BAM Racing #159 Schwan's Home Service Dodge ranked low on the speed charts throughout practice and qualifying.

In first practice, the #159 ranked 52nd. Larry ran his best lap in 30.500 seconds at 181.770 , Session leader Ryan Newman completed a circuit that was 1.587 seconds faster.

Larry was the last of 58 drivers to attempt to qualify for Sunday's race. His 30.558-second lap at 181.426 MPH ranked 53rd on the speed charts, and was 1.619 seconds behind pole-winner Newman. Because the #159 is 59th of 77 car numbers in owner point standings, Larry was not able to make the field with a provisional starting position.

Larry will return to Nextel Cup racing in November for the final event of the season in Homestead-Miami. Coverage of the Ford 400 begins November 21st at 12:30 pm ET on NBC and MRN radio.
