Scott Sharp No. 8 Delphi/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone

"Today was a good opening day for the Delphi team. We didn't worry at all about the time sheets today. We basically just worked on the race car trying to get a head start for May 30th in case we race in similar conditions. There is a lot of time left this month to worry about going fast."

Sarah Fisher. No. 39 Bryant/CAN/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone

"Today we got off to a little bit of a rough start. We started off quite a bit different from where we had been at the open test. This afternoon we got a little frustrated with that and went back about halfway on what we had been running at the test and it was a huge change. We got the car back to a good position but we only had 20 or 30 minutes to tune on that package so we've still got some work to do. It was a rough start today but at least we ended the day on a good note."

Position: 18th
Speed: 215.358 mph
Time: 41.7908 seconds
Total Laps: 63
