INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Panther Racing took advantage of the open track Saturday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and had all three drivers on the 2.5-mile oval perfecting race setup. It was the third qualification day at the Speedway, but Panther was still able to get valuable track time during the breaks between qualification runs. Listed below are notes and quotes from Saturday practice.

Tomas Scheckter #4 Pennzoil Panther Racing

"We're really solid. Like every race, these Panther engineers always get the setup just right. For sure, that Pennzoil Platinum car is going to make its way to the front next weekend. It's been a great month; I'm impressed with how hard this team has worked and how helpful all of my teammates have been."

Tomas Enge #2 RockStar Panther Racing

"This is going to be a difficult race and I'm going to learn from my experience here. I'm glad to work with Panther. I just want to run next weekend without any problems, and do as well as I can. The RockStar team has worked hard and I'm going to try and finish this race for my guys. I think we can surprise some people."

Buddy Lazier #95 Byrd Brothers/Panther Racing

"Another steady, consistent day. I felt really good working in traffic and feeling out the changes we were making to the car. We were able to get some pit stop and launch work in today, so we've definitely moved a few steps forward in our race day preparation. The Byrd Brothers/Panther team keeps making the car better each and every day. Race day can't get here soon enough."
