Eddie Cheever Jr., No. 51 Team Cheever/The Children's Beverage Group Infiniti/Dallara/Goodyear (6th fastest): "We did some more work on the engine today. We found a few things, but really we are down to the bits and pieces now. The Infiniti is running very strong, and the chassis is also running well. We worked primarily on race setup today."
