CAMARA CLAIMS ANOTHER POLE IN MENARDS INFINITI PRO SERIES

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Saturday, July 23, 2005 -- Jaime Camara, driving the No. 1 CELG/Sam Schmidt Motorsports Dallara/Infiniti/Firestone, won his third pole of the season with a quick lap of 142.852 mph (25.5790 seconds) in qualifying for the Milwaukee 100 on July 24.

Jon Herb (142.644 mph; 25.6162) will join Camara on the front row. Series points leader Wade Cunningham (140.864) and Arie Luyendyk Jr. (140.513), Brian Stewart Racing teammates, will occupy Row 2.

MILWAUKEE 100 POST-QUALIFYING QUOTES:

JAIME CAMARA (No. 1 CELG-Sam Schmidt Motorsports Dallara/Infiniti/Firestone, won SWE Race Car Parts Pole Award): "First time here in Milwaukee, I think it is a good thing because it is a tough track to pass and we have a fast car. It is a long race, 100 lap race, and with fast guys behind me I can't make any mistakes tomorrow."

JON HERB (No. 6 AERCON Dallara/Infiniti/Firestone, qualified second): "It was a good run for us. Unfortunately, we got just a little, little, little bit short. I think they said something like four hundreths of a second off, so it was a really good run. Unfortunately, we were a little off the mark. The car is really good, and it's the same car we are racing with, so it will be that good in the race as well, so we look forward to that."

WADE CUNNINGHAM (No. 33 Motorsport New Zealand Dallara/Infiniti/Firestone, qualified third): "I think we were a little too conservative on the car setup in qualifying. My effort was the best I saw of anyone. We just need to improve the time. I qualified third, which is good, same as Nashville. It's a good position to be in. We'll work on the car for this afternoon's warmup, then get a good night's sleep for the race tomorrow."

ARIE LUYENDYK JR. (No. 3 Karcher Dallara/Infiniti/Firestone, qualified fourth): "The run was really great. That's the quickest we've been all weekend. Our dilemma is just keeping the car good on the long run. Hopefully in the warmup, we can make some changes and get the car more consistent, so it will last the whole race and be quick the whole race. We'll work on that in the warmup, but I'm happy with the fourth-place qualifying."
