Saturday Practice Notes from Fundidora Park

- The second 30-minute practice session for the Tecate Telmex Grand Prix weekend got underway in sunny and comfortable conditions Saturday morning.

- Following Friday's superb qualifying session, Pacific Coast Motorsports and driver Alex Figge elected to try some changes to the car in practice.

- After taking several laps to warm-up the tires, Figge did some quick laps to determine the effect of the changes.

- At almost the exact halfway mark of the session, the red flag was displayed for a car impacting the tire wall, halting the session.

- When the session resumed, Figge returned to the course having made additional changes to the car.

- Very late in practice, the session was again halted, for a car going off-course.

- When the session resumed, Figge was only able complete one lap.

- At the checkered flag, Figge was ninth quickest with a lap of 1:28.105 (85.931 mph).

- Final qualifying for Sunday's Tecate Telmex Grand Prix begins Saturday at 12:50 p.m. (local time).

"We spent most of practice trying different things with the car," said Figge. "I didn't get many laps in the session, but I'm confident going into qualifying."
