IRL: Indy 500: Dixon, Manning day five summary


#1 Scott Dixon- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone
Best Practice Speed: Did not run today's practice
Laps run in #1 car: 0 laps
Position at end of the day: Did not run

"I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't run today in the end as we had planned but as a team we made the decision that we felt was best. We had rain most of the day the team wanted to give Darren a chance to try my car set up. We had trimmed out the car quite a bit and we'll do the final tweaks tomorrow for qualifying when we run some simulations. All in all we're right on schedule for Pole day."

#10 Darren Manning- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone
Best Practice Speed: 219.519 mph (40.9988 seconds) in No.1T car
Laps run in #1 T car: 22 laps (in Scott Dixon's back up car)

"After dealing with rain most of the day, the team used this afternoon's session to put me in Scott's back up car to try some things out with his set-up. I'm pretty happy with the work we got done as we ran in the top 5or 6 most of the time. I got a little loose coming out of 1 and got out of the grove and white walled the right rear a bit. There was some very minor damage but we decided that we had gotten done all we wanted to do today. We'll trim the car out for the final practice on Friday and things look good heading towards pole day."
