McDONALD'S DRIVER WILSON AND HOLE IN THE WALL CAMPS DRIVER RAHAL GAIN MORE EXPERIENCE ON FINAL DAY OF INDY 500 ROOKIE ORIENTATION

Graham Rahal, No. 06 Hole in the Wall Camps Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "We're getting a little bit quicker, but we've still got a ways to go. The car is quicker, but there is still some speed to find. We've gone completely flat, so now it's a matter of taking wing out of it and going quicker. We need to focus on getting qualified in the first weekend, so we can take the second weekend off."

Justin Wilson, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "I think we learned a little bit. We didn't make as much progress as I think we were hoping to. But on this track it's probably better to take it slower than to rush through things. We did the right thing and took our time and made sure we made positive steps. The McDonald's car feels pretty close to where we started, so we just need to start making a few small changes and get up there. It's difficult trying not to rush through things too quickly. Each corner is definitely different. Usually the speed is a bit higher into turns one and three. They're similar but they're different because the wind is a factor. The car reacts different in that and you have to adjust for it."
