Saturday Qualifying

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard:

Qualified 17th - 25.558 = 211.566 mph

"We had a lot of understeer because of the heat conditions. With the temperature, we lost some grip and some aero balance. I know I have a better race car than a qualifying car so we'll see what happens tomorrow. I am a little disappointed about qualifying because we have everything to do very well. McDonald's came aboard and they have given us a lot of help. It will be a tough race tomorrow. We need to be patient and bring home a good result."
