Qualifying for Saturday night's Milwaukee Mile Centennial 250 was cancelled after a line of severe storms moved through the Milwaukee area Friday afternoon and evening, dropping large amounts of rain on the track and surrounding areas. Champ Car's Chief Steward Chris Kniefel announced that the cars will grid based on the combined practice times accumulated during the past two days.

Grid Position: 12th

"It's very unfortunate for us that qualifying was cancelled due to the rain. I really think we had a car that was capable of a top-six start so we were really looking forward to qualifying. The car still isn't perfect but we have a chance to make a few changes during the warm up tomorrow afternoon. After that, we'll just have to work hard during the race to move up. I think it will be quite difficult because from what we've seen during practice, it is still very hard to pass here. But it's a long race and we'll be focused on making sure we finish the best we can."

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4
Grid Position: 15th

"It would have been nice to have qualified tonight for sure. The car was very good last night in the cool air and we expected to be quick tonight too. We played a lot with the car this afternoon; we actually went a bit the wrong way and made the car slower in the warmth of the daytime. I was very enthusiastic about the set up we had last night for the race car and we'll go back to that for tomorrow."
