Marlboro Team Penske Post-Practice Quotes - Toyota Indy 400
Friday, September 19, 2003

"We had a good day today. The Marlboro Team Penske car was handling well and I think we'll be competitive on race day. The speeds don't matter that much today, because some cars were drafting with each other and some weren't. The point is, the car feels good and I think we're in the hunt. Tomorrow we'll shift our focus to the qualifying set-up and hopefully we'll be able to put it near the front of the grid."
