Allmendinger and Tracy Qualify Second and Fourth at Toronto

TORONTO, Ontario, Canada - July 8, 2006 -- Forsythe teammates A.J. Allmendinger and Paul Tracy will start from the second and fourth positions for tomorrow's Molson Grand Prix of Toronto. The Forsythe duo has unfinished business at Toronto after last year's race which saw Tracy run out of fuel after leading most of the race with only half a front wing, while Allmendinger dropped out due to an accident in the final laps of the race giving up a podium finish.

Qualified Second

"I think it's been a great weekend so far for the whole Forsythe Indeck team. Compared to the first two weekends I was with the team, this has been the most of a struggle, probably the most difficult track we've been to so far. The team has worked really hard. We've struggled at times, we've been good at times. We made a change for the Bridgestone reds. I think we just went over the top just a touch. The car has been close all weekend. It kind of brings me back to Portland where we were just close all weekend, got it exactly right for the race. My engineering staff has been amazing so far this year getting the car perfect for the race. Congratulations to Justin and the whole CDW team that just nipped me at the end."

Qualified Fourth

"I'm not happy with our qualifying effort, I struggled the whole session just trying to find a gap, every time I started a fast lap somebody would slow down in front of me and I had to start all over again. We put the red tires on for the final stint but we just couldn't improve anymore, for some reason we just can't figure out how to make the car work on the reds and it's really been a problem for qualifying."

Tomorrow's race will be televised live by CBS Sports at 12:30pm Eastern Time. You can also tune in to Race Director, available through the Champ Car website, for live coverage of the race and many practice and qualifying sessions with multiple channels of live video, audio, timing, telemetry and commentary.
