Al Unser Jr. Driver Quote:

"We feel very comfortable with the car, but every day everyone is going to go a little bit quicker. I think that we can get a bit more out of the car, but it is all going to depend on track conditions. Once the track conditions change, meaning temperature, everyone's car is going to change.

"We need to make sure that we can adapt to those changes, because that is what can catch people out at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. We need to make sure that we can run quick in all conditions. If you don't take every little thing into account, it will turn around and bite you. We don't care what other people are doing, as long as we stick to our game plan and the car is doing what we want it to do. It is going to get real close out there with the speeds in the next few days, and qualifying is going to be a really good show." -Al Unser Jr.

Rick Galles Owner Quote:

"We are glad to be where we are but there are going to be a lot of guys that are going go a lot faster than they are now. We are going to focus on qualifying and make sure that we get a fast enough time to get into the show. Al is right in what he says about this place can turn around and bit you if you aren't careful, so we are just going to use the experience that we have around here and stick with the plan we came here with."
