TWO LEXUS-POWERED PROTOTYPES QUALIFY IN TOP-10 FOR MIAMI ROLEX

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (March 28, 2008) -- Series points leaders Memo Rojas and Scott Pruett qualified third in the #01 Telmex/Target Lexus, while Shane Lewis and Bill Lester will start 10th in the #3 Southard Motorsports Lexus in Saturday's Grand Prix of Miami. Rojas and Lewis qualified their respective cars and will start the race.

The Chip Ganassi Racing duo of Pruett and Rojas registered the fastest time in each of the two previous practice sessions, but saw increasing heat and changing track conditions affect their run for the pole.

"We were hoping for a pole run, but it's quite a bit warmer now than it has been all weekend and we got caught out a little," said Pruett. "But we're definitely still in a good position for tomorrow's race."
