Sharp, 8th Quickest, Pleased with Progress

Practice Summary: Sharp began his first run of the day at 1:00 pm, completing 39 laps with a top speed of 226.505 mph which placed him sixth at the time. Sharp returned to the track for his final run of the day at 4:45 pm.

Scott Sharp, #8 Delphi Panoz/Honda/Firestone:

"I think we are where we want to be heading into Pole Day. It was another great day for the Delphi Fernandez team. We went through more items on our list and learned some things that will help us for qualifying, and also a couple of things that may help us for the race. We had some speed. It is hard to tell what everyone else is doing because so many guys are drafting, and it is hard to tell what they can really do on their own. Of speeds on our own, I think we are up there. We are in a good position right now."
