Gil de Ferran
-- 25th fastest practice time -- 32.356 sec.

"Today we concentrated on preparing ourselves for the race by running various aero packages in race configuration. With the championship wrapped-up, our focus is on winning the Marlboro 500, and to do that we must have a comfortable racecar. Tomorrow morning we will focus on our qualifying set-up, and hopefully our times will be closer to the front of the field."

Helio Castroneves -- 30th fastest practice time -- 32.694 sec.

"Today's practice sessions gave us a chance to prepare for the Marlboro 500 on Sunday. We used long runs to work on the race set-up -- we weren't going for speed today. Tomorrow we'll focus on gaining speed for qualifying."
