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

"Great day for the Delphi team. We didn't have quite the speed we wanted when we started this morning but we dug deep, worked hard and looked at tons of data and we were able to help ourselves. We took a lot of big steps and made a lot of changes and battled back to having a pretty good car towards the end of the day. If the weather is nice tomorrow we could see some pretty big speeds going up so hopefully we'll be able to find some more speed as well."

Position:   10th

Speed: 230.193 mph
Time: 39.0977 seconds

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

"We're at a point now where we are working on trimming out the car and trying to get a realistic idea of where we are for qualifying. So we've pretty much been staying out on our own and trying to stay out of the tow and see where the car is for Saturday. We're still working on our set-up and trying to find the perfect balance."

Position:   17th

Speed: 227.885 mph
Time: 39.4936 seconds

Tony Renna No. 32 Cure Autism Now/HomeMed Pharmacy/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone

"I'm fairly pleased. It was another good day of work by the Cure Autism Now/HomeMed Pharmacy team. Today was more focused on qualifying trim and I think we got some really good work done. In my fast run I was definitely in a bit of a tow. But I think we're still getting there, although there's a bit more stuff we can do with the car. The car is really good in that trim and I'm really pleased about that fact. I think the crew has done a great job and we really haven't deviated from our plan and things are going well."

Position:   8th

Speed: 230.309 mph
Time: 39.0779 seconds
