WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (June 2, 2006) -- Panther Racing driver Vitor Meira utilized practice time Friday to perfect his skills around the tricky road course at Watkins Glen International Raceway.

The lap speed was good for seventh on the speed chart.

The IndyCar Series season resumes next weekend from Watkins Glen International Raceway. The race will be held on Sunday, June 4th with coverage available live on ABC at 3:30 p.m. (EDT), on the IMS Radio Network and XM Satellite Radio Channel 145.

Vitor Meira Quote:

"We made a pretty big jump from the first session this morning into the second practice. That's what we expect tomorrow when we run again before qualifications. I think we can continue to get better and better. It's just like my Race Engineer Bill Pappas said -- we're going to keep moving and continue to only have better days. That's what we did today and that's what we'll continue to do."
