"I'm really looking forward to racing this week at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. I haven't ever visited this track or raced on it but I know it's going to be great. I always really enjoy the Canadian events; the fans there really know their racing and the events draw huge crowds.

"It'll be interesting racing on the same track as the F1 series but I think people shouldn't try to compare the two. They are very different series with different rules, different cars - a completely different ball game really. My personal opinion is that the fans will see a much better "show" this weekend than they are used to. In Formula 1, you can pretty much predict who the top five finishers will be every race. But in Champ Cars, it's anyone's guess. The entire field is so competitive that everyone has a chance at the podium every weekend."

Fast Facts
* Molson Indy Montreal marks Domínguez's 13th start in the CART FedEx Championship Series.


* Last weekend's eighth place finish at Elkhart Lake's Road America circuit was Domínguez's best of the season.

What's Next
Friday's on track activities will feature a 90-minute Champ Car practice session beginning at 10:00am ET followed by a one-hour preliminary qualifying session at 2:10 pm ET.

Event Coverage
Television coverage of qualifying will air live on SPEED Channel on Friday afternoon beginning at 2:00 pm ET. Live timing and scoring will be available online at www.cart.com.
