Paul Tracy 1 Indeck Forsythe Racing Lola/Ford

By the end of today's qualifying session Paul Tracy is set to start tomorrows race in third position behind a Newman Hass front row and next to team mate Patrick Carpentier. Tracy worked very hard today and held on to the second place qualifying position for the majority of the session. Tracy felt that the lack of grip was to blame for the loss of time in the final laps of qualifying this afternoon. "we really struggled for grip on the car, we just can't get the tires to grip this track. Newman Hass has definitely found mechanical grip for their cars, but we plan to tray a different set up tomorrow and keep working at it."

Patrick Carpentier ran second for a portion of today's qualifying session, though his final qualifying was fourth he was happy with his results. He had this to say about his efforts "It was good actually--we went out for qualifying and the car was very good, we were missing a little bit of grip but with just a few hundredths of a second more we would have been second in qualifying. Overall it was a good day." Carpentier will start in fourth position for tomorrows Third annual Centrix Financial Grand Prix of Denver.
