Dario Franchitti, #27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We made some good progress again today. I feel like we've been pretty close all week. We're just really trying to get it as close to perfect as we can. Obviously, the more information we get the better job we can do with that. But, I'm pretty happy. The ArcaEx guys did a good job today. Again, having three teammates certainly helped. Bryan, Tony, Dan and I all ran in a simulated pack and that seemed to help."

"We got a lot of work done today on the ArcaEx car. I think we're getting closer on our race setup. We did a couple of good long runs and we've learned a lot. We really are getting pretty close. We've still got a couple of things we need to improve. Hopefully, over the next few days we can make those final little steps." -AGR-
