Pacific Coast Motorsports practice 2 notes from Long Beach.

- Saturday's practice for the CART Toyota Atlantic Championships 20th trip to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach got underway in sunny but cool conditions.

- The Pacific Coast Motorsports team worked all evening Friday making changes to the car in preparation for Saturday's sessions.

- Early in the session the majority of the drivers are trying changes made to the car overnight.

- By the midway point of the 30-minute session, Figge had steadily improved his times and moved into sixth position.

- With just over 12 minutes left in the session, Figge pitted to make further changes to the car.

- At the 25 minute mark, the practice session was red flagged for a car striking the tire barrier.

- When the session resumed, Figge quickly set about posting a quick lap.

- Right before the checkered flag, Figge posted a fast lap of 1:17.592 (91.308 MPH), to move into fifth position.

- Final qualifying for Sunday's Round Two race begins, Saturday at 3:00 p.m. (PT).

"The car keeps getting better every session out," said Figge. "We need to keep working, because I know everyone else will. I think we should be in good shape for qualifying."
