"We have an uncomfortable brake pedal, it just doesn't feel like it should. The car also seems to be down a little on power.

Bill Keith is happy with his run. "I had a good run, there are a lot of DPs out there. In practice you never really have all of them on the track at once, this took a little getting used to. We have a spotter on the tower and that is a huge help, it really makes it a pleasure to drive." The number 67 Porsche is currently 17th.

Jim Pace started the number 68 Porsche and was happy with his speed and his competitors. "The key is to get through and behave in traffic. The DP cars are really driving heads up and giving room. It is early in the race and we have a long way to go. We are looking to be steady and keep it on the track." After turning over to Jim Lowe, the car met with some tough luck and he struck the wall. The 68 car is currently 31st and in the garage for repairs.
