Spring Training

FedEx Championship Series

Location: Miami-Dade Homestead Motorsports Complex, Homestead, Fla.

Track: 1.502-mile oval

Session: Final day of open practice

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard:

Total laps: 101

Morning Practice: 11th fastest 25.501 seconds = 212.039 mph

Afternoon Practice: 4th fastest 25.462 seconds = 212.364 mph

Combined Sessions: 10th fastest 25.462 seconds = 212.364 mph

"It was a very good two days. We were running in the top 10 most of the time and finished the day fourth quickest. We are still not 100 percent yet, but we learned a lot about the car and it responded very well to the changes. The car handles really, really well in traffic which is good for the race.

"A lot of things happened to me this week -- announcing McDonald's and getting to spend time with them and Jerry (Forsythe). The team looks great and the car looks beautiful. If we look half as good on the track as we do off, we will do well in the races. I am very happy."
