Qualifying

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard - Starting 14th: "We are where we should be for tomorrow. It's been a challenging weekend but we were able to improve our lap times and I think we are getting there. I have to say thanks to Steve (Horne). I would say that 50 percent of the time, he was the one who was out there yesterday helping me with my braking points and other things. One more time, he's the boss.

"For tomorrow, I think we have a decent race car and maybe a top-six car. Top 14 is okay for us to start the race. If we can come out of the next two ovals with some good points, I think we're going to be okay for the championship."

Top 10 Starting Positions:

1. Juan Montoya 25.014 = 182.778 mph 2. Paul Tracy 25.094 = 182.195 mph 3. Helio Castro-Neves 25.103 = 182.130 mph 4. Patrick Carpentier 25.187 = 181.522 mph 5.
