Marlboro Team Penske Post-Practice Quotes - Toyota Indy 300
Friday, February 27, 2004

"So far, I think we're in good shape. We worked on the qualifying set-up of the Marlboro Team Penske car this morning and the race set-up during the second session. We had the chance to take some long runs this afternoon and I think the car is handling well. Tomorrow morning we'll go back to working on the qualifying set-up and hopefully find that extra little bit to help put us near the front of the grid."

-- Helio Castroneves, Marlboro Team Penske, 2001 & 2002 Indianapolis 500 Winner
-- #3 Marlboro Team Penske Dallara/Toyota
-- Ninth fastest combined time - 24.8061 sec. (215.512 mph)

"We worked on our race set-up during both the morning and afternoon sessions and I'm happy with what we were able to accomplish. The Marlboro Team Penske car was consistent and worked well running the high or low lines. This afternoon we were able to run with some of the other guys and the car was good in traffic. Tomorrow morning we'll shift our focus and see what we've got for our qualifying run."
