HIGHCROFT RACING FIFTH ON GRID AFTER QUALIFYING AT ROAD AMERICA TEAM AT THE TOP OF THE ACURA TRIO

Highcroft Racing's David Brabham led the Acura trio in today's qualifying session at Road America to put the team fifth on the grid for tomorrow's four-hour race.With a lap time of 1:49.767, Brabham finished the session very satisfied with the car's performance.

After struggling with times yesterday in the practice sessions, running 2 and half seconds off the Penske Porsches, the team dramatically narrowed the gap with the Porsches today.

Brabham said "we're very happy with the progress.We were running ninth yesterday, so hats off to everyone in the engineering room for honing the car's set -up to perform like it did today.The team has done a fantastic job to give me a great race car - and obviously a pretty good qualifying car, too! You can always tell when the tire is right for the race and that's what it felt like today - so great job by Michelin and Acura - we're in good shape for tomorrow."

Stefan Johansson was also enthusiastic about the car today."We were miles off yesterday, so to come in fifth today, leading the Acuras, is a great show for the team.The guys did a spectacular job in getting the car where it needed to be to achieve a strong qualifying time.It's great to be back at Elkhart Lake, it's one of my favorite tracks.It will be great fun to drive the Acura here."
