Franchitti to Start Fifth at Infineon in Klein Tools/Canadian Club Car

SONOMA, Calif. (Aug. 26, 2006) - Dario Franchitti will start the #27 Klein Tools/Canadian Club car from the inside of Row 3 for Sunday's running of the Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma. Franchitti, who qualified for the Fast Six Shootout, posted a best-lap speed of 107.130 miles per hour (1:17.2893 seconds) during his qualifying attempt for the 80-lap event.

ESPN will provide live broadcast coverage of the event starting at 3:30 p.m. (EDT). The entire 14-race IndyCar Series schedule can be heard live by XM Satellite Radio subscribers by tuning into XM channel 145, the exclusive home of the IndyCar Series.

Dario Franchitti, #27 Klein Tools/Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"I wouldn't say that we're real happy to start fifth but it's okay. The Klein Tools/Canadian Club guys worked their tails off today because we had two full setup changes and they did a great job. The car is feeling as good as it has all weekend, we just came up a bit short."
