Al Unser Jr.:
"We have a good car, but it we were off on our gearing and it created too much drag on the car. The weather has changed a lot since yesterday, which was probably a factor in our gearing. The important thing now is to just focus on the race tomorrow. I feel that we have a competitive race car, and when it comes down to it that is what counts. We feel that we have run some strong laps on this track that have given us some good insight into what our car is going to do on race day, so we will just go from there.

"There might not be a lot of side by side racing on this track like there was at Texas last weekend, but you are definitely going to see some good competitive racing. There should be a lot of passing and the pack will probably stay pretty close. I like Pikes Peak International Raceway, and I am excited to race here tomorrow for the first time. The Indy Racing Northern Light Series has some great venues and this is definitely one of them."
