Dario Franchitti, #27 Klein Tools/Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone:
"The race car felt pretty good this morning and that's really what we worked on during both practice sessions this morning. I'm actually surprised about our qualifying speed because we really have focused so much on the Klein Tools/Canadian Club car in race trim. So, hopefully we'll have a race car we can contend with."
