Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I think we made a little bit of progress today on the XM Satellite Radio car.  We've got another full day of running tomorrow.  As much as we are trying to simulate race conditions, I don't think anyone knows how the cars will react on race day.  We are trying to do the best preparation we can and I'm sure we'll be ready."

"It was tough out there for us today.  We chased an electrical gremlin most of the practice and it seemed like another problem would pop-up after we had just gotten a solution.  We still have more work to do tomorrow, but the XM Satellite Radio car is pretty good right now."
