McDONALD'S DRIVER WILSON AND HOLE IN THE WALL CAMPS DRIVER RAHAL 13TH AND 14TH RESPECTIVELY IN PRACTICE FOR THE DETROIT INDY GRAND PRIX PRESENTED BY FIRESTONE

Justin Wilson, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "I think the McDonald's team made a little bit of progress today. Obviously it wasn't as smooth of a day as we would have liked. I made a mistake and brushed the wall in the first session that cost us some running time. We're just going to keep working on the car and try to make it a little more driveable. It's right on the edge right now and making us work for it (lap time). I'm confident we will make a good step overnight and we'll come back tomorrow and be closer to the pace and feel more secure in the car so we can go out there and attack."

Graham Rahal, No. 06 Hole in the Wall Camps Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "I think we made some progress today and learned quite a lot toward the end of practice that is going to help us tomorrow which is the biggest thing. We weren't quite a quick in the second session as we hoped but we had a really good lap going at the end but (Tony) Kanaan slowed me. It probably would have moved us up to around seventh which would have been where we were in the morning session. There is still a lot of speed to be found so that is our goal."
