Well, it's been a tough two days as we've struggled with the brakes on the car. We still have a ways to go but it's definitely better. The set up overall is great. I have to give credit to the engineering team. We didn't have much time to work on it but we haven't had to make many changes - the car was good off the truck.

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

The Herdez team took another big step today developing a route we have never used this year in set up. We had problems with the clutch yesterday so we weren't able to post a time. Today, we had the option to go to Mario's set up but we decided to stick to our development program. We have now touched on something that really works and we expect to continue to improve tomorrow. It's not the best qualifying attempt but we're not taking the easy route because we believe this will be useful for the race tomorrow.

Fast Facts:

1. Dominguez's fifth place qualifying position sets a new "season-best" mark for 2003. His previous best qualifying position this year was sixth on the oval at EuroSpeedway Lausitz. Dominguez has improved his qualifying position at every track this year over 2002.

2. The Mario Andretti Grand Prix will be Dominguez's 31st Champ Car . start He currently sits 8th in the championship with 65 points .

3. Moreno will make his 113th Champ Car start. He is 13th in the standings with 39 points.
