We struggled during the early part of the weekend at the last race in Wisconsin but when qualifying came around we were able to post a good time. Because of the rain, we weren't able to capitalize on that in the race. So I'm looking forward to Mid Ohio this weekend to make another crack at it. We had some good testing time at Mid Ohio earlier this summer and I think that will help a lot.

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

Mid Ohio is a beautiful track and one I really enjoy racing on. We tested there not too long ago but unfortunately, I was ill that week and wasn't able to take full advantage of the time. Our team is really clicking now and I feel confident that we can build on the success we earned last weekend at Road America.

Fast Facts:

1. Moreno has six previous starts at Mid-Ohio, with a best finish of 6th in 2001.

2. Dominguez has one Champ Car start at Mid-Ohio (2002; start 18th, finish 16th), and two additional starts while in the now-defunct Dayton Indy Lights series (2000; start 11th, finish 11th and 2001; start 7th, finish 6th).

3. Dominguez currently stands 4th (behind Jourdain, Fernandez and Carpentier) in total miles completed so far this season with 2312.893 of a possible 2457.900 (94.1%).

4. At least one Herdez Competition driver has placed in the top ten in each of the first twelve events (including five top-fives), setting a new team mark.

Where They'll Be:
