Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I'm pretty happy with the XM Satellite Radio car. I think we've accomplished everything we wanted to. If we had another week we'd probably go out there and practice everyday, but that is the nature of the game. We've had a good month other than the qualifying accident; everything has gone according to plan."

George Klotz, Team Manager, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The XM Satellite Radio team has done a really good job. We made a plan before the month started and we've stuck to it as best as we could. We've been working with our teammates trying to get the best setup for the car and we think we are pretty close. I'm looking forward to running again on Carburetion Day and also seeing our guys do well in the pit stop competition."
