DISAPPOINTING QUALIFYING SESSION FOR HERDEZ DRIVERS

Herdez-backed drivers Michel Jourdain Jr. & Memo Gidley had a disappointing qualifying session taking the 23rd and 24th spots, respectively. Michel's best lap average speed was 111.409 Mph. and Gidley's was 110.585 Mph.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #19 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "The car was a little bit better, but not enough as we needed. The car is still bad with a lot of looseness that caused me to crash."

Memo Gidley, Car #71 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "My team had to change the motor and we were late for the last timed session. We only had the last ten minutes and that's why we only used one set of tires. The potential is there, but we need to get used to the car and the new team."

Antonio Marron, Motorsports Director of the Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "Unfortunately we qualified in the back. We could not qualify toward the front of the grid as we planned and on this track it is difficult to overtake, but I hope we can run a good race."
