MARCO ANDRETTI TO START FIFTH IN VONAGE CAR AT KENTUCKY

SPARTA, Ky. (Aug.12, 2005) Vonage driver Marco Andretti turned a lap of 185.019 miles per hour (28.7970 seconds) to net the fifth starting position for tomorrow's running of the Menards Infiniti Pro Series Bluegrass 100 at Kentucky Speedway.

Andretti, who will make his fourth career Pro Series start on the 1.5-mile tri-oval, won two series races earlier this season. His first win came at the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, while his second win came in the Liberty Challenge on the road course at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Saturday's 100-mile event begins at 3 p.m. (EDT).

Marco Andretti, #26 Vonage Dallara/Infiniti/Firestone:

"I'm pretty happy with the car. We had a lot of understeer that we needed to get out of the car, so we made a few little changes after the last practice and it helped it a lot. Now, I can run it right down on the white line all the way around. If you can do that here during the race, it doesn't matter too much where you start."
