But our stops were fast all day, and Al Unser Jr. drove an unbelievable race. I am proud of Didier and Casey for the job that they did during the race as well. The entire team is making progress and I am really looking forward to going to Atlanta with my team in April."

Car #3 : Galles Racing Starz Super Pak

Qualifying Position: 19th Finishing Position: 6th

Driver Quote:

"The Starz Super Pak car was awesome today. My Galles pit crew was spot on all day during my pit stops and I can't say enough for what a great car I had during the race. Unfortunately when I came in for my last stop I ran out of fuel because the mapping system in the car made the fuel too rich on the laps before I came in, and I ran out on my in lap. We have 11 races to go, and we are going to go to Atlanta and race just as hard.

Driver Quote:

My car was definitely a lot better than it was in Phoenix; and although we jumped around quite a bit all weekend, we started finding our way when we went back to Al's set up for the race. By far our biggest problem was push and it took me pretty much the whole race to learn what the right adjustments we needed to make with the front wing. But that is the key work, learn. I feel I now have much more experience with this race under my belt in knowing how to adjust the car. And with that I feel so much better going into Atlanta. As far as our pit stops, I was battling with the clutch the whole race, and that definitely hurt us. However, my guys did a great job in the pits and all weekend and I am really proud of them. I also want to thank my sponsors SportsLine.com, Budweiser and TV Guide.

Driver Quote:

We worked a lot with the car this weekend, and the biggest problem was push and we battled with that all the way through our first pit first stop and then we made the adjustments to the front wing that were the right ones. We were running good on fuel and tires, and the guys did a great job on pit stops. From where we started, I would say that we had a really good race, and I can't wait for Atlanta.
