McDONALD'S® DRIVER BOURDAIS FIFTH FAST IN PROVISIONAL QUALIFYING FOR THE MOLSON CHAMP CAR GRAND PRIX OF TORONTO; JUNQUEIRA SEVENTH

Sebastien Bourdais, No. 1 McDonald's Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone: "The McDonald's team had a fairly good first run. We had quite a bit of traffic but put it in P2 (second fast). We were pretty close but then the other guys put the Bridgestone red's (softer alternate tires) on and set faster times on their second runs. We had a small misunderstanding so we decided not to go back out on the second run and instead try to think about our setup and try to make it better for tomorrow."

Bruno Junqueira, No. 2 Hole in the Wall Camps Ford- Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone: "The car was okay. I was close to P3 (third fastest time) on regular tires then some guys ran the Bridgestone alternate tires on their second runs. Everyone is very close apart from A.J.; he looks to have an edge. On the first outing I flat spotted one of my tires and got traffic on my second set but we will continue to improve the car and try to gain some positions in final qualifying."

ON THE SCHEDULE TOMORROW: The morning practice will take place from 10:30- 11:30 while final qualifying will take place from 2:00-3:00. Fans can follow along live by monitoring the free timing and scoring feature on the official website of the series, www.champcarworldseries.com/. Race coverage will be televised live on CBS Sports on Sunday at 12:30 PM ET.
