Mario Ok After Contact at Turn One

Indianapolis, IN -- Mario Dominguez made contact with the turn one wall this morning while preparing for qualifying at the Indianapolis Motors Speedway. Dominguez was not injured in the incident. The incident occurred just before 11:00 am in the final practice before qualifying begins at Noon ET. Fortunately, the damage is not severe and as long as the necessary parts are available, Dominguez will return to the track this afternoon to qualify. Dominguez is prepared for the task both mentally and physically, he is an experienced driver and ready for the task at hand.

Mario on the accident: "I just lost the rear-end going into turn one. We've been fighting understeer there all week and working hard to stabilize the car. This is a huge set-back for us. Fortunately, I wasn't going that fast at that point and I lost it early so I scrubbed a lot of speed. The boys think they may be able to get it fixed in time to qualify today, if they can get the parts. I am keeping my fingers crossed."
