WHELDON QUALIFIES KLEIN TOOLS/JIM BEAM CAR IN THE 11TH SPOT AT HOMESTEAD-MIAMI SPEEDWAY

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (March 5, 2005) - Klein Tools/Jim Beam driver Dan Wheldon recorded a best lap of 212.768 miles per hour (25.1260 seconds) to capture the 11th starting position for Sunday's running of the Homestead-Miami Indy 300.

The first race of the 2005 Indy Racing League® IndyCar® Series season is set to begin Sunday at 2:15 p.m. (EST) with ESPN providing live broadcast coverage of the event beginning at 2 p.m. (EST).

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

"This is typical for us on tracks like this. The Klein Tools/Jim Beam team is pretty quick in practice, but we always lose some speed in qualifying. It's something we're going to focus on this year, but not to worry -- this will be a good race and an entertaining race for the fans. We don't have the race balance quite where we want it yet, but we'll keep working toward what we need for Sunday." -agr-
