"We spent about half of the afternoon session working on qualifying set up for tomorrow and about half working on race set up for Sunday. In some ways the qualifying position here is not as important as at other races because it is such a long race and you have so many opportunities to move up.

"Right now the car is perfect when I am running alone - very smooth and stable and the balance is good. But we have too much understeer when running in traffic so we are still working on fixing that."

Qualifying for the Harrah's 500 Presented by Toyota will begin at noon (EDT) on Saturday, July 21st, following a final 90-minute practice session in the morning. Cable network ESPN2 will air the qualifying session beginning at 4:30pm (EDT). Live timing and scoring will be available online at www.cart.com. <pre>
