JOURDAIN JR. QUALIFIES 22nd IN RIO

Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports driver Michel Jourdain Jr. took the 22nd position on the grid for the race Rio 200, which will be held this Sunday at the at the trioval Emerson Fittipaldi Speedway at the Nelson Piquet International Raceway in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Michel's best lap was at 39.856 seconds.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #16, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "We lost a little bit of speed in the straightaway in comparison from this morning session and we gained some in the turns. We have as less downforce as possible and the car developed oversteer exiting the turns."

Joe Ward, Team Manager, Herdez/Bettenhausen: "We lost the balance from the car from this morning session which limited our exit speeds. I believe we have a really good balance on the car for our race setup."
