I'm excited about the race at Elkhart Lake because we just tested there last month. At the test we were third fastest so we're looking to continue on that route. All together I think the car has a good package to begin with, and we are looking forward to a good result this weekend. The Road America track is beautiful, and for a driver, racing there really gets your adrenaline pumping. It is definitely a track for big boys.

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

For sure, I'm very happy that the race in Elkhart Lake was returned to the Champ Car schedule this year. In my opinion, Road America is the best overall road course in the United States. It's quite special in my career too because it was the second track I ever raced on in Champ Cars. It has all types of corners - slow, medium, fast, kinks - so you must work very hard there. It's such a pleasure to drive it - it reminds me a lot of the classic European circuits. It will be quite a different experience from the tracks we have been racing on recently because you run much lower downforce there. It takes a different kind of touch to be fast there; the driver must be more delicate with the car in some ways. It's great fun for me to race there and, for the fans, it's a great track to come watch the cars. It's a great holiday area for the whole family.

Fast Facts:

1. Moreno has six previous starts at Road America, with a best finish of 4th in 2000

2. Dominguez has one Champ Car start at Road America, in 2002 he started 17th and finished 8th

3. At least one Herdez Competition driver has placed in the top ten in each of the first eleven events (including five top-fives), setting a new team mark.

Where They'll Be:

Friday, August 1st; Both Dominguez and Moreno will be signing autographs at the Champ Car "Fan Appreciation Activity" from 4:30 - 5:30 pm local time in the Champ Car Paddock.
