Herdez-backed driver Michel Jourdain Jr. took 23rd provisional qualifying position for the Motorola 200 race, which will be held this Sunday at Road America, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #16, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "For the qualifying session we used the primary car, which developed oversteer. We tested several things and we will make some changes for Saturday's session. We were expecting to do a good lap towards the end of the session, but a red flag prevented us to do so."

Joe Ward, Team Manager, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "We used the Friday practice in the qualifying session, to test various parts. There were last minute items from the engineering department and we gained valuable information that along with a higher output spec engine, we will use it for our advantage tomorrow (Saturday)." k
