CHAMPCAR/CART: Miami: Herdez Competition Saturday report

Mario Dominguez - Driver, Car 55 Conditions are very hot, but better than yesterday. I feel like we may need to play around with the tire pressure a bit more. The last lap of my qualifying run was a little slower than the previous ones.

Conditions are very hot, but better than yesterday. I feel like we may need to play around with the tire pressure a bit more. The last lap of my qualifying run was a little slower than the previous ones. Overall, I am happy with the behavior of the car. We will have a good day tomorrow after placing in the top eight today.

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

I am quite happy with the progress the team has made on the Herdez Competition car. Today the conditions were better to drive. On the last lap the tire pressure rose on the rear tires, and as I went into the fountain and at the top of the hill I got a little sideways. I really like this track, it is really challenging and I like challenges.
