Kanaan to Start Fifth in Season-Opening Event At Homestead-Miami Speedway

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (March 25, 2006) - Team 7-Eleven driver Tony Kanaan registered a lap of 216.178 miles per hour (24.7296 seconds) in the #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone during qualifying today at Homestead-Miami Speedway, and will start from the fifth starting position for Sunday's running of the Indy Racing League® IndyCar® Series Homestead-Miami Indy 300 Presented by XM Satellite Radio.

The season-opening event of the 2006 IndyCar Series is set to go green at 3:45 p.m. (EST) Sunday with ABC Sports providing live broadcast coverage of the 200-lap event beginning at 3:30 p.m. (EST). The race may also be heard on XM Satellite Radio on XM channel 145.

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone:
"We never worked on our qualifying car in practice. I've got to thank Dario (Franchitti) and my engineers because Dario did some work this morning on the qualifying setup while I worked on race setup in the Team 7-Eleven car. That's the secret of this team. We're not as dominant as we were last year, but we're still going to work together and tomorrow we're gonna go for it."
