Herdez-backed driver Michel Jourdain Jr. qualified 21st for the Motorola 200 race, which will be held this Sunday at Road America, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. His best lap time was 1'42.417 at 142.289 Mph.

Michel Jourdain Jr., Car #16, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "We improved a lot our times, but on our last lap Tony Kanaan went off in front of us and I had to brake. I think we lost 2 or 3 tenths because that, but the most important thing it's that we improved our times. We are now working to cure the problem of understeering. Hopefully tomorrow we will be more competitive."

Joe Ward, Team Manager, Herdez/Bettenhausen Motorsports: "We improved our times, but this was not enough. We will do some changes and hopefully tomorrow we will have a good race."
