LEXINGTON, Ohio -- (July 18, 2008) -- Panther Racing and its IndyCar Series and Firestone Indy Lights teams tackled the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course during the first day of practice for this weekends races on the road course.

Dillon Battistini:

"We've found a good direction to head towards tomorrow during qualifying. We definitely made some progress during the second practice session. We'll try to improve the car further during the qualifying session as well. My familiarity with the circuit is improving with each session that we run. Hopefully tomorrow we will be able to find more speed in the car, and I will be able to put some good laps together and start near the front."

Brent Sherman:

"We have to fix the handling for qualifying. We should be able to take what we learned today from each car and apply it, getting the cars where they need to be setup-wise. I think that we'll get there. We just need to get some good laps in tomorrow; something we didn't do today. It just seems like we come into road courses out to lunch, and I don't have enough road course experience to make the car go fast."
