Wheldon Qualifies Klein Tools/Jim Beam Car 14th at California

FONTANA, Calif. (Oct. 2, 2004) - Klein Tools/Jim Beam driver Dan Wheldon recorded a best lap of 213.861 miles per hour (33.6667 seconds) during qualifying today to earn the 14th starting position for tomorrow's running of the California Indy 400 at California Speedway in Fontana, Calif.

The California Indy 400 - the next-to-last race of the 2004 Indy Racing League® IndyCar® Series season - is set to begin Sunday at 3:25 p.m. (EDT) with ESPN providing live broadcast coverage of the 200-lap event beginning at 3 p.m. (EDT).

Dan Wheldon, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"The Klein Tools/Jim Beam car hasn't had the best of luck qualifying on superspeedways this year, but we've been able to get to the front pretty quickly. I'm sure we'll have a good race car, but it always makes it a little more difficult to be starting this far back in the field."
