Target to Start 4th and 8th in IndyCar Season Opener at Miami

#9 Scott Dixon- Honda / Dallara /Firestone
"I feel pretty good about the run. The car was really comfortable and we had no issues. I think our race speed will be much better and I feel somewhat more confident going into this first race of the season than we did in a few races last year. The car is really good and while in the past we were chasing speed, now were just going to work on making the car comfortable to drive for the race."

#10 Dan Wheldon- Honda / Dallara /Firestone #"The Target team has given me a really good race car and we've worked on that all weekend long. We had just a bit too much downforce for qualifying. We're not too worried about it because you don't get points for qualifying. We know we've got a strong package and I'm looking forward to defending my win here and start the season off on the right foot."
