Second and Fourth for Allmendinger and Tracy at Montreal

Montreal, Quebec, Canada -- Saturday, August 26, 2006 -- The Forsythe duo of A.J. Allmendinger and Paul Tracy put in a strong qualifying effort for the Grand Prix of Montreal today by placing their Indeck/Forsythe Champ Cars in the second and fourth positions on the grid. Both drivers struggled with changing track conditions which made the balance of the car vary from the previous practice session, but the team made adjustments midway through the session that paid off. There is a high chance of rain for Sunday which should make for one of the most exciting races of the 2006 Season. The speed of Team Forsythe was on display not only in the Champ Car World Series, but also with its driver development team in the Champ Car Atlantic Championship as Canadian James Hinchcliffe captured his first career Pole Position.

A.J. Allmendinger

"I was really pleased after practice, but then in qualifying we struggled a little bit with the balance of the car. Yesterday we weren't able to qualify because of a mechanical problem so we had to make sure we got a good lap in today. Last time we qualified like this, I won the race so I'm very confident going into the race tomorrow. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and the truth is that I really enjoy the rain -- ok, actually, I've never raced in it but I'm sure it will be lots of fun!"

Paul Tracy

"Well I'm pretty happy. It's the best I've ever qualified here in Montreal so it turned out to be a pretty good effort by the team, a top 4 qualifying position. It looks like the weather tomorrow is going to be a little iffy so I think the race is going to be pretty interesting. Overall it's been a pretty satisfying weekend so far."
