Dominguez and Tracy will start from the third and fifth row at Milwaukee

Milwaukee, Wisconsin -- June 3rd, 2006 -- The Forsythe Team struggled today during qualifying at the flat and tricky Milwaukee Mile Oval. Last year Paul Tracy had a great start and battled his way to the lead from the fifth starting position in only 19 laps. He led for the rest of the race and took his first Victory of 2005. Mario Dominguez will try to keep his streak of strong consistent results going and will defend his third position in the Championship. The Time Warner Cable Road Runner 225 is the only oval event of the year for the Champ Car World Series.

Mario Dominguez -- #7 Orgullo de Mexico/INDECK Ford-Cosworth/Bridgestone/Lola

"The car was understeering too much and I just could not get back on the throttle soon enough to be able to challenge the front runners. I guess the good thing is that out of all the tracks we run at this one is where qualifying matters the least, you can pass cars going into Turn 1 and Turn 3 and you can move through the field if you have a good car. Tomorrow during warm up we are going to try to make the be as quick as possible in traffic, we did a long run yesterday during the open test and the car was pretty consistent, we still need it to be a little quicker but hopefully we'll do that tomorrow and we'll end up with another strong result that will keep me in the top 3 of the Championship."

Paul Tracy -- #3 INDECK Ford-Cosworth/Bridgestone/Lola

"I'm very disappointed with my qualifying position; we just have not been doing a good job this year with our qualifying cars. We overcompensated for the weather change from the morning and ended up with a huge understeer. It's going to be a tough fight tomorrow because the top 8 cars are very fast and very close, so coming through the field is going to require a lot of patience and concentration. I've always been good here in Milwaukee with cold tires so I'm going to try to pick up as many positions as possible at the start and then use my experience to get through traffic better that the other guys. We need a strong result to keep us in the Championship chase."

The fourth round of the Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford will take place tomorrow at 2pm ET and will be televised live by SPEED.
