TARGET TEAM QUALIFIES FOURTH & FIFTH AT KENTUCKY

QUALIFYING AT KENTUCKY: Scott Dixon will start from row two after setting the fourth quickest qualifying lap speed of 216.481 mph while Dan Wheldon will start fifth with a 216.481 mph. Tony Kanaan earned the pole position with a speed of 218.086 mph.

INDY PRO SERIES: The Pro Series will race this Saturday night at Kentucky as the no.9 CareCentric Target team and driver Chris Festa is still working towards an elusive first win this season. Festa had a pole position and two second place finishes; the first in the season opener at Homestead-Miami Speedway and then at the Indianapolis Freedom 100. Festa will start the Kentucky 100 from the sixth spot on the grid after a fast lap time of 187.923 mph.

SCOTT DIXON:"Not too bad, I think our speed was all over the map today, and it doesn't seem we really changed much on the Target car. It just seems to go faster or slower on its own. Hopefully traffic this weekend will be pretty decent, and we can still get through. The two Andretti Green Racing guys in the front row are definitely quick. Those are the guys we've got to beat, so we'll definitely try to do that."

DAN WHELDON: "We didn't quite get the speed out of the Target car that we would have liked. I'm not 100 percent sure why, but certainly we have a good race car. We'll make the best of it."
