Adrian Fernandez, #5 Investment Properties of America Panoz/Honda/Firestone:

"We struggled a little bit today. We went with a different balance from yesterday and the car feels better, but we are scrubbing a lot of speed in the corners and we are just not fast enough. We are going to rethink everything and see where we are for tomorrow. Friday is the last practice day before qualifying. The car feels good at this speed, and we need to be more aggressive for tomorrow."
