IRL: Indy 500: Dixon, Manning day four summary


#1 Scott Dixon- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone
Best Practice Speed: 220.941 mph (40.7348 seconds)
Laps run in #1 car: 57 laps
Position at end of the day: 5th

"I'm happy with the car. It's pretty decent and we've made some gains in various areas but while we were the fastest Toyota powered car out there we are a little bit frustrated because we thought we would have a little more speed as well. We're still concentrating on Pole day but unless we make significant improvements it seems just a little less realistic. I think we'll be much stronger in our race set ups and give our competition a good run for their money."

#10 Darren Manning- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone
Best Practice Speed: 218.841 mph (41.1258 seconds) in #10 car
Laps run in #10 car: 24 laps
Laps run in #10T car: 14 laps
Position at end of the day: 16th

"We trimmed the car out a little more and between both cars we tried out a few different things and we feel positive about the direction we're heading in. The car feels good and we made some steady progress but we're always looking for a bit more speed. We'll run a lot more qualifying simulation out there in the next two days."
