Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #19 Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "The car has too much push. We just have not been able to get the right balance. We are working on that and hopefully tomorrow we have a good car. We improved our times, but not enough."

Antonio Marron, Motorsports Director of the Herdez/Payton-Coyne Racing Team: "We improved our times, but so did the rest of the field. Seeing a Lola take second place on the grid, we know that we can be competitive. It is just a matter of time and hard work."
