Herdez-backed driver Michel Jourdain Jr. took 19th place on the grid for the Freightliner/G.I. Joe's 200 Presented by Toyota race. His best time was a 59.624 lap at 118.885 Mph.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #16, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "We did not improve our times as much as we expected, but we keep working in order to get a good result in the race. Our balance is better, but it is not as good as we would like. I hope tomorrow we can do it better, this track suits me well, because here I've got here my first point in CART."

Joe Ward, Team Manager, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "Both qualifying sessions were cut short and this limited our time to get a good balance in the car, required to get an optimum time. We look forward until tomorrow as Michel proved to be excellent during race conditions."
