FORMULA DREAM/PANASONIC DRIVER MUTOH LOOKING FORWARD TO POLE DAY FOR THE INDY 500; RAN LIMITED LAPS ON "FAST FRIDAY" DUE TO THE CONDITIONS
Hideki Mutoh, No. 06 Formula Dream/Panasonic Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "We are in good shape; I think we are ready for qualifying. I think it's reasonable to hope to be in the top-nine. Its hard to say for sure because you don't know who has had a tow and who hasn't but I think our car has enough speed to be in the top-nine. I haven't had big problems here this year but Indy is never easy, especially after you have trimmed your car. The wind was very gusty today and inconsistent so it was very hard to keep the speed. We worked on race setup three or four days this week and we worked on qualifying yesterday and today and the car was good. Fingers crossed that we are ready to go."
