St. Pete: AFS/Andretti Autosport qualifying report

CHARLIE KIMBALL, ...

CHARLIE KIMBALL, #26 TEAM LEVEMIR? FLEXPEN? CAR
* Finished seventh quickest in qualifications; will start on the fourth row at Sunday's race

"Qualifying was good. It wasn't exactly where we expected to be or hoped to be. We struggled a little bit with balance. Right at the end, we were getting ready to make an improvement but the yellow came out and caught us. I think there's another three-tenths in the car, but we didn't get the lap. I'm really confident in the #26 Team Levemir? Flexpen? car and our ability to pass. When the race goes green tomorrow, we have a really good shot at winning."

MARTIN PLOWMAN, #27 TEAM AFS RACING/ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT CAR
* FInished fifth fastest in qualifications; will start on the third row on Sunday

"To be truthful, obviously P5 isn't terrible but not what we were looking for. Up until qualifying I felt we were strong all weekend and we were serious competitors for the pole position. We went the wrong way slightly for the setup with the hot conditions and that hurt us. I know I've got a very strong car for the race. I'll have to be patient and pick off cars one by one. Hopefully we'll be on the podium tomorrow with the #27 Team AFS Racing/Andretti Autosport car."
