HOLE IN THE WALL CAMPS DRIVER RAHAL EARNED HIS BEST CHAMP OR INDY CAR STARTING POSITION OF SECOND PLACE FOR THE ABC SUPPLY / A.J. FOYT 225 AT THE TEAM'S HOME TRACK; McDONALD'S DRIVER WILSON DISAPPOINTED WITH 22ND PLACE

Justin Wilson, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "We've struggled a bit today and haven't quite got the balance right on the McDonald's car. We went from quite a lot of understeer to quite a lot of oversteer now. This is one of those places where when you get it right it feels great but when you get it wrong, it's a tough day. The key is going to be to try to find a balance for the race. You need to have a good solid race car where you can change lines and that's the key. You need to be good in traffic and move around without worrying about the car too much."

Graham Rahal, No. 06 Hole in the Wall Camps Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "Obviously, I'm pretty happy with my first front row start. It would have been great to get the pole. It was so close, but unfortunately, that's the way these go. A lot of this car came out of the Newman/Haas/Lanigan notebook for sure. A race car is a race car. They are slightly different animals maybe but the concept is the same. All the experience these guys have had just carries on. They've done a great job. It was nice to have that one hour practice on Friday because it allowed us to be more comfortable. It's a tough track for sure so to qualify this well is rewarding and also a great reward for all of the hard work the guys have done this year. We'll move on from here. I think we have a great racecar and we'll have to see how it goes tomorrow."
