Toronto, Ontario, Canada (July 15, 2000) - Della Penna Motorsports rookie Norberto Fontana will start 22nd in his #10 DIRECTV Toyota/Reynard for tomorrow’s Molson Indy Toronto with a speed of 106.741 mph (59.198 seconds) around the 1.721-mile temporary street course.

Norberto Fontana: “On the first set of tires (during this afternoon’s final qualifying session), the car was not bad. It was better than it had been in the morning session and it continued to get better with the few changes we made in the session. When we put on new tires at the end, I lost second gear just when the new tires were up to pressure and ready for a fast lap. I think we could have done a 58.5 (second lap). It’s a good racecar though, so hopefully we’ll get a good result tomorrow.”
