Scott Sharp No. 8 Delphi/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone

"I'm really pleased that we got a chance to go back out in the Delphi car today. It was a bit of a pain for the crew guys to have to come back in and run today but we were able to get the last few items checked off of our list. I really feel confident about where our car is for the race. We made a few small changes that really helped the car and I'm happy. We're ready to go!"

Al Unser Jr. No. 31 Corteco/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone

"All in all it's been a good month for the Corteco team. There's been drastic differences in weather but I think we've gotten plenty of track time this month. I got back into my primary car today and I feel good about the Corteco car. We made some changes that we had developed during the last week of testing. Now the guys will totally tear down the primary car between now and Thursday (Carburetion Day) and then we'll just shake the car down during Carburetion Day practice and be ready to race. We worked on our pit stops today and my guys on the Corteco team just do a great job. We'll be ready come race day."
