Franchitti Qualifies 10th in ArcaEx Car at California Speedway

Fontana, Calif. (Oct. 2, 2004) - Dario Franchitti recorded a lap of 214.344 miles per hour (33.5908 seconds) in the #27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone during qualifying today at California Speedway, which earned him the 10th starting position for Sunday's running of the Indy Racing League® IndyCar® Series California Indy 400.

Round 15 of the 2004 IndyCar® Series is set to go green at 3:25 p.m. (EDT) Sunday with ESPN providing live broadcast coverage of the 200-lap event beginning at 3 p.m. (EDT).

Dario Franchitti, #27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"It wasn't a bad run. The balance of the #27 ArcaEx car was pretty good, but the wind made it difficult to get the gear ratio correct. We definitely suffered a bit in qualifying because we made the decision this morning to focus on doing a long race run. As a result, we don't have a proper qualifying setup. But, we're very happy with our race car."
