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

"We just don't seem to be very quick. I'm sure the Klein Tools/Jim Beam team is good enough to make sure we have a reasonable car in the race, I'm just not sure how good the car will be. I'm just really happy to see Dario on the pole."
