Saturday Qualifying

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard - Qualified 11th:

"The car was loose in Turn 2 which slowed us down a little. We had a problem on the primary car this morning, and only had about 25 minutes in the backup before we went out to qualify. I think we took the best out of the car we could. I was full throttle both laps. I don't think this car is as good as the primary, but we'll make it that way for tomorrow. It's going to be a long race, and I think we will have a consistent car."
