Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The rain today hurt us a little bit. We spent most of the week working on the race setup for the XM Satellite Radio car. Yesterday was the only work we did with our qualifying package so we will need to make good use of tomorrow morning's practice. But then again, sometimes if you run too much you get lost and the weather may have kept us from doing that today."
Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"It is going to be an interesting day tomorrow. We'll have a few qualifying attempts plus some practice in the morning so I'm excited. The whole Team 7-Eleven crew has worked hard all week and I hoping tomorrow is going to be really good."
Dan Wheldon, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Tomorrow is a big day for the Klein Tools/Jim Beam team. The closer to the front we start the better I think we will be. There are going to be a lot of contenders for the pole because everyone has shown a lot of speed this week. This field is so close it will be difficult, but I think this Klein Tools/Jim Beam car has a chance at the front row."
Dario Franchitti, # 27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The weather wasn't a help today for the ArcaEx team. We still had a little bit of work to do on the qualifying car because we have spent the majority of the week working on our race setup. Hopefully we'll do well tomorrow morning and we'll go out and throw some big numbers up in qualifying." - AGR -
