Herta, Franchitti and Kanaan To Start Fourth in LMP2 Class in Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring
SEBRING, Fla. (March 15, 2007) Bryan Herta, one of three drivers of the #26 XM Satellite Radio Acura, qualified fourth in the LMP2 class for Saturday's Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring. Herta posted a best-lap speed of 123.996 miles per hour (1:47.423 seconds) during the qualifying session and starts sixth overall in the 34-car field.
Herta will be joined by Andretti Green Racing teammates Dario Franchitti and Tony Kanaan.
The Sebring event, the first of 12 on the 2007 American Le Mans Series schedule, will be the first ALMS race in Andretti Green Racing's history. The team collected two IndyCar Series championships in 2004 and 2005 and won the 89 running of the Indianapolis 500 in 2005.
Bryan Herta, #26 XM Satellite Radio Acura: "The XM Satellite Radio Acura felt really good during the qualifying run. It was comfortable, was handling really well and I was very happy with it. We obviously would have liked to have qualified higher on the grid but we all know it doesn't make any difference for the race. We have a few more practice sessions prior to the race to get ready and hopefully we'll have a good result on Saturday."
