Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We made some good gains with the feel of the XM Satellite Radio car and that is the key early in the week, getting the car to feel the way I want. We still haven't been working on a trimmed out race car yet. Indy always feels better when you're going faster. That little bit of extra speed gives you a little more downforce and a little more grip. You know the faster you go, the better it feels."
