Mario Dominguez - Driver, Car 55
Grid Position: 8th

"The car is pretty good. Our qualifying strategy didn't work out exactly as we had planned though. Looking back, we should have stopped for a fresh set of tires. Still, eighth is a good starting position and I'm looking forward to tomorrow's race."

Fast Facts:
This qualifying position (8th) is Dominguez's best in his Champ Car career, eclipsing his previous mark of 9th which was recorded at the final round of the 2002 season at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City.

Sunday's race marks Dominguez's 21st Champ Car start.

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4
Grid Position: 14th

"We had a plan for qualifying that we would run the entire 15 laps in one stint. But the tire pressures got a bit out of control and we had to come in to correct that. So because of the tire pressures we basically threw our strategy away. We have made the car a lot better - just not good enough yet."

Fast Fact:
Sunday's race marks Moreno's 103rd Champ Car start.
