CHAMPCAR/CART: PacWest Gold Coast qualifying notes

SCOTT DIXON - ...

SCOTT DIXON - #18 NEXTEL POWERWARE PANASONIC PACWEST TOYOTA
Position: 8th Time: 1:33.209s Laps: 12 Speed: 107.951mph
"The car was pretty good, but it had a little bit of understeer. We changed a few things to the front of the car and it was a better on the second set of tires, but then the brakes had overheated and we had no stopping power. Qualifying eighth isn't too bad and I feel pretty good going into the race tomorrow - we definitely have a good chance of winning, but we'll have to pass on the in and out laps."

MAURICIO GUGELMIN - #17 NEXTEL PACWEST TOYOTA
Position: 25th Time: 1:35.567s Laps: 5 Speed: 105.287mph
"I'm definitely disappointed because the car was working very well and then a red flag came out. Then I made a mistake on turn 8 clipping the wall on the inside sending me to the outside putting an end to my session. I have a small chip fracture to my right hand, but hopefully some ice tonight will do wonders and we'll have a good race tomorrow. We'll definitely need an aggressive pit strategy."
