Making Gains: Alex Figge is coming off his best qualifying result of the season. The American rookie qualified 13th on the challenging airport circuit. The result was also the rookie team's best qualifying result of the season.

Alex Figge on Mont-Tremblant: ""We made progress in Cleveland and had our best qualifying result of the season. We should be able to start Mt. Tremblant off on a stronger foot after testing there and also taking what we've learned the past week at Road America and Cleveland. The circuit is beautiful and very, very fast. Growing up near the mountains and ski resorts in Colorado, I feel right at home in Mt. Tremblant. I am excited."

Hopefully we learned some set-up info from Cleveland that will apply and we'll be looking for another top-ten. I am looking forward to trying a new venue; I expect it to be a pretty big event. The town seems like a great vacation town and I think the Champ Car race will be a great addition."
