"I am really disappointed with where we will be starting the race tomorrow. I hope we can improve the car for the race because it's going to be a long one. I will need to be fast and smart to get the result we need. On the positive side, the last time we qualified around this position on the grid on a street-course, we ended up on the podium."

Jeremy Dale, Team President

"It was a disappointing day for Michel. We just never got the car right, in terms of balance. Michel put together several clean laps really well, but we just didn't get what we needed out of the car today. We'll work tonight to make some improvements and really focus on getting where we need to be to bring the Gigante car home with a strong result for our families, friends, and partners at our home here in Denver."
