TEAM CENTRIX DRIVERS BOURDAIS AND JUNQUEIRA COMPLETE FINAL PRACTICE FOR INDY 500

OVERALL: Bourdais and Junqueira joined the other starters for the 89th Indy 500 in today's one hour final practice session before the race on Sunday. Both drivers scrubbed tires for the event and worked on their race set up although neither driver was satisfied with the balance of their race car.

Sebastien Bourdais, No. 37 Team CENTRIX Honda/Panoz/Firestone: "We were quite hopeful that the CENTRIX car would be as good as it was when we left two weeks ago but it was not. The track has changed and we were following more traffic that we did when we practiced here so that could contribute to the difference. I can't say we are really happy with the balance. It's not perfect but it will be different again on Sunday. We will do our best to bring a good result for Team CENTRIX on Sunday."

Bruno Junqueira, No. 36 Team CENTRIX Honda/Panoz/Firestone: "The CENTRIX car wasn't very good today but we will continue to work to improve it for the race. It's been two weeks since we drove the car and today we had understeer in Turns 1 and 2 and it was loose in Turns 3 & 4. Newman/Haas Team CENTRIX will look at the data and hope to have a good race car on Sunday."
