McDONALD'S DRIVER BOURDAIS FOURTH FASTEST IN PROVISIONAL QUALIFYING FOR THE CHAMP CAR GRAND PRIX OF CLEVELAND; PACIFICARE DRIVER SERVIA EIGHTH FASTEST

Sebastien Bourdais, No. 1 McDonald's Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone: "We were really, really close but one-tenth of a second difference puts you P4 (position four); that's how competitive the series is now. We stuck to our plan and only ran the standard tires so maybe there is more on the table for tomorrow. Da Matta and (Paul) Tracy used the alternate tires so maybe we can gain some time there. On my fastest lap I made a small mistake in Turn 8 and then on the next lap I made a mistake in the chicane. The McDonald's car was really, really close but everybody just stepped up."

Oriol Servia, No. 2 PacifiCare Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone: "We changed the PacifiCare car a little bit for the second run but I wasn't able to put a lap together. The car feels good but we are still farther off than I would like to be. I'm confident we can get it together tomorrow and move closer to the front."

ON THE SCHEDULE TOMORROW: The morning practice session will take place from 10:15-11:15 AM ET while final qualifying will take place from 2:00-3:00 PM.
