Scott Sharp - #8 Delphi Dallara /Honda/Firestone:

"It was a good day for us. We weren't too worried at all about trying to go fast today. It was all about trying to work on the basic race car. We ran a decent amount of fuel all day long, and just tried to really work on the basics not knowing what the weather is going to do. JD (John Dick, race engineer) and the Delphi guys made some really great changes and I think we learned some things that made the car better. That is really what you hope for on the first day. This gives us a great starting point for tomorrow, or whenever we end up running [due to the weather forecast]."
