MCI Worldcom 200 March 26, 1999 Practice Session

Driver: Jeff Ward

Car: Pagan Racing No. 21 Dallara/Aurora/Goodyear

Position: Morning - 24th - 21.993 / 163.688 Afternoon - 19th - 21.889 / 164.466

Quotes: -Jeff Ward- (On this morning's problem) We had a problem with the hubs this morning. The wheels were moving back and forth which was knocking the brakes over. I had no brakes. Plus it doesn't help the handling of the car.

(On this afternoon's session) We learned a lot this last session. We're definitely good for the race.

(On the switch from G Force to Dallara) It's been a little tough learning the new car. I feel a lot different in it. We still don't know what it really likes. It's not too bad, it just takes a little while to find out what the changes are we need to make.

(On the race set up) We've been running 35 gallons of fuel every time I go out. We've been topping it off for each run.

(On tomorrow's qualifying) We just have to creep up on it. I only have 35 laps in this car. We've got a good race car. There are a few things we could do to go faster but right now we've got a good race car. When we work on a qualifying set up we'll take the fuel down. It just takes a little time.

(On track conditions this afternoon) The wind was really bad in three and four. It would push you out. But it's the same for everybody.
