Herdez-backed driver Michel Jourdain Jr. took 20th position on the grid for the Molson Indy race. His qualifying time was a 59.022-second lap at 107.045 mph.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #16, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "We had a very good start on Friday morning, but today we could not improve our times as much as my peers did. The car developed oversteer during qualifying. But I am confident on Sunday my team will fix the problems to be competitive during the race."

Joe Ward, Team Manager, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "We made a big gain from this morning, but we are not happy with the rear end of the car. We will work on rear traction more in the morning session tomorrow and we look forward a competitive race."
