"I think the Team 7-Eleven car is okay. We need to keep working. The temperature has changed quite a bit from the other days to today. It was just a long day waiting for the rain to stop and then the rain came back, but that's Indy. One day to go, then it will be time to go and then we can focus on the race."

Eric Cowdin, Race Engineer, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I think the balance is about right where we need it. We just need to trim the Team 7-Eleven car for conditions. Obviously, it's going to be cooler for us on Saturday and I think we got a taste of that today. The run today was clean, by ourselves, so I think we're in the ballpark. I think we just need to optimize for conditions on Saturday and we'll be in good shape."
