Dan Wheldon, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Everyone seems to be focused on the championship outside of Andretti Green Racing, but within the team we are focused on winning this race. The Klein Tools/Jim Beam team had a good day. We posted a 217 with a draft during a qualifying simulation during the morning session, and then focused on our race setup in the afternoon. On the superspeedways like California Speedway, you can never really read too much into practice times on Friday. I certainly think that, other than the race, the most important session is the final warmup."
