"Overall, we had a good day of practice," said Gugelmin. "It started off kind of shaky when I had a slight vibration in my transmission during the first practice session. It wasn't really affecting me that much, but it was a concern. After the session ended, we had a look at things and were able to make the necessary repairs. When I went back out this afternoon, my balance was great. We were able to learn a few things in the second session, and I only used two sets of tires all day, which is nice. I'm happy with the way things are progressing so far this weekend and looking forward to qualifying."

SCOTT DIXON
"This was my first full day of practice on this track and I think it went well," said Dixon. "I found my self using up my tires quicker than I would like, so we might have a look at that tonight and adjust the camber on my car a little. I didn't get as good of a run on my last stint because I got caught up in some traffic. Otherwise, I think we could have improved on our time and position before the checkered flag flew. I am happy with the day and we're right on track with my set-up to put in a good qualifying run tomorrow."
