Herta, XM Satellite Radio Car to Start 16th at Nashville

LEBANON, Tenn. (July 14, 2006) - Bryan Herta will start from the 16th position for Saturday's Firestone Indy 200 at Nashville Superspeedway. Herta, who drives the #7 XM Satellite Radio machine, posted a best-lap speed of 199.386 miles per hour (23.4721 seconds) during his qualifying attempt on the 1.33-mile oval. The 200-lap event will air live on ESPN beginning at 9 p.m. (EDT). The entire 14-race IndyCar Series schedule is also carried live on XM Satellite Radio channel 145, the exclusive home of the IndyCar Series.

Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"That wasn't really the kind of speed that the XM Satellite Radio team was hoping for. To be honest, I really don't know why. The car didn't feel bad; it just didn't go very fast."
