#1 Scott Dixon- Toyota / Panoz G-Force /Firestone

"Milwaukee is a fun little track that you really have to drive. I've run four races on that track in recent years and they've all been somewhat memorable. I won the 2000 Indy Lights race from the pole in Milwaukee and that's also the first race I ever ran for Target Chip Ganassi Racing. This is the first time the IndyCars will be running there but a lot of the drivers are familiar with the track. It's a very flat track but I think that it will suit our Target Toyota/ Panoz G Force quite well as it is mostly about handling. It'll be very important to qualify well this weekend because there is really only one line and it isn't easy to pass on this track. You can't go two or three wide there, and if you do, it won't be for long. As heated as the competition out there has been lately, that probably means it'll be another very interesting race for the fans in the stands and on TV."
