Cleveland, Ohio (July 1, 2000) - Norberto Fontana's speed of 127.927 mph (59.265 seconds) posted during yesterday's provisional qualifying put the Argentine rookie 22nd on the starting grid for tomorrow's Marconi Grand Prix of Cleveland. Fontana's fastest lap during this afternoon's final qualifying session was 127.486 mph (59.470 seconds) around the 2.1-mile converted Burke Lakefront Airport runways.

Norberto Fontana: "It's disappointing. We weren't able to improve the set-up of the car from yesterday. The car was OK, but I wasn't able to attack or I'd lose time over the bumps. Right now, I'm hopeful to finish the race strongly for our new sponsor, DIRECTV."
