"I'm still coming to grips with this track since it's been a couple of years since I have been here. I need to improve my driving in some spots around the track and we still have some work to do engineering-wise. The long-radius corners on this track make it unique and interesting relative to some of the other street circuits we compete on. In a way, it makes the car a little more difficult to set up. We have a pretty decent set up on the car and we're really not far off the top ten times. If we make just a couple of good changes, we'll be right in there."

Fast Facts
* Molson Indy Vancouver marks Domínguez's tenth start in the CART FedEx Championship.

Macri, a 20-year-old native of Gormley, Ontario, Canada is coming off a career best finish in Toronto (second) and is currently sitting sixth in the point standings with 29 points.
