Mario Dominguez, #55 Herdez/Lola/Ford-Cosworth/Bridgestone

Mario at Road America: Mario's best qualifying result of the 2003 season came at Road America last year when he started the race in the fifth position. His day resulted in contact in a downpour after several rain delays.

2004 Statistics: Dominguez currently sits ninth in the championship, just seven points out of seventh. Half way through the 2004 season, Dominguez has shattered his previous qualifying averages, he started in the top-five in five of the seven races completed this season, and his starting average is fifth while his finishing average is seventh.

Ride with Mario for Charity: Mario is participating in the Tour de Road America Saturday at 7:00 p.m. Fans will have a chance to lap the beautiful four-mile road course on a bicycle at Road America with Dominguez and several of his fellow Champ Car competitors; including his teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay, while contributing to the Lance Armstrong foundation which benefits cancer research.

Mario on Road America: "We had our best qualifying result of the year at Road America last year when I started fifth and we have been consistently starting in the top-five this year so I have high expectations for our weekend. That track is every drivers dream circuit, it is wide, fast, steep, fast corners, it's awesome and I can't wait to return. We have had very good qualifying results the last few races and now we need to turn those into podium finishes. It is important to race hard and have a good strategy at Road America and that is my plan."
