Justin Wilson, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "Today was okay. The weather conditions were very different from when we ran earlier in the week so the McDonald's car was feeling very different. We slowly worked through it and I thought we were reasonable at the end. I was happy with the balance at the end and the speed was getting better. It just takes time to adapt to these different conditions. We don't have the experience to call upon to make the big jump. We've got to take one small step after another. I think the pole will be right at 225 mph, maybe 224.5."

Graham Rahal, No. 06 Hole in the Wall Camps Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "I think that overall it was a pretty good day. We got a lot of time on track despite the rain. We're still trying to find speed unfortunately. I don't know when it's going to come but I hope we find it. I think the pole speed will be 225-something (mph). I could be wrong but I think the people doing 226's (mph) are getting a tow to do that. I would guess it will be a high 225 like last year."
