Target Chip Ganassi Racing ...

Target Chip Ganassi Racing

#1 Scott Dixon- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone
Best Practice Speed: Did not run due to rain
Position at end of the day: Did not run due to rain

"Pole day will be a bit easier for me this year since I now know what to expect having been through it for the first time last year. I think aiming for a top five is realistic. It's a shame we didn't get to running a few more qualifying simulations today because of the rain, but we've done a lot of work this week, found some things we liked and feel pretty positive about qualifying."

#10 Darren Manning- Toyota / G-Force /Firestone
Best Practice Speed: Ran just one installation lap due to rain
Position at end of the day: Ran just one installation lap due to rain

"Qualifying for the Indianapolis 500 is completely different than anything I have ever experienced but I'm lucky to be with a team that has plenty of experience and success at this track. I'm relying on them to get me through my first Pole day. It is quite exciting and I am looking forward to it. I know we're ready for it but everyone has been running all week under the same weather conditions and the forecast for Pole day will be somewhat different with cooler temperatures, so that adds an extra measure of challenge to achieving success."
