CHAMPCAR/CART: PacWest Vancouver Friday notes

SCOTT DIXON - ...

SCOTT DIXON - # 18 NEXTEL POWERWARE PANASONIC PACWEST TOYOTA
Position: 17th Time: 1:02.528s Laps: 35 Speed: 102.540mph

"We've got a few changes to make tonight, but overall my car is not bad," said Dixon. "I'm a little upset that we didn't get a chance to put in a fast time with new tires, but we went out twice on stickers and both times a red flag flew during my flying laps. We really couldn't gauge things under those conditions, but that's the way it is. I think we're going to sort out some of our gear ratios tonight, so we'll definitely be ready for qualifying tomorrow."

MAURICIO GUGELMIN - # 17 NEXTEL PACWEST TOYOTA
Position: 20th Time: 1:02.607s Laps: 38 Speed: 102.410mph

"My session was not too bad, despite what my position says," said Gugelmin. "I'm fighting a little mechanical grip and the traffic was really bad today, but other than that I think we're okay. We have a good idea where to improve and today is not payday. The track was pretty green this morning, as expected, so we had several red flags to contend with but we kept the Nextel car intact and really learned a lot today."
