1995 TOYOTA GRAND PRIX OF LONG BEACH PPG Indy Car World Series Race No. 4 April 7-9, 1995

LONG BEACH, Calif. -- SpeedNet -- Hello and welcome to Friday's practice and qualifying sessions here at the 1995 Toyota Grand Prix of Long beach! We are and online live. The Indy car session ran a little late today, so we are a little late as well.

Temps are in the high 70's, sunny, with occasional cloud cover. There were a few minor "offs" but nothing serious - no cars damaged.

After a long practice session which lasted almost 30 minutes longer than the scheduled 90 minutes, Michael Andretti has the fastest time.

Michael and Jacques Villeneuve were the only ones to repeatedly use the curbing at "Turn Bud," where I spent most of the session.

Second fastest in Friday's practice session was Paul Tracy, followed by the impressive Patrick Racing team with driver Scott Pruett, best of the Firestone runners.

Steven Heathcote is almost finished compiling the complete results of the first practice session and I will pass this on just as soon as it is ready.
