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

"It's been another good day for the Kelley Racing Delphi team. We've stayed with our plan and things are going very smoothly. We've been doing quite a bit of running on our own, trying to stay out of the draft so we can get a realistic idea on where we are in our plan. I think we're a pretty strong car on our own and we're just going to keep working on our development."

Position:   12th

Speed: 228,969 mph
Time: 39.3066 seconds

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

"We did what we wanted to do today and the guys are doing a great job. We had a motor change scheduled for this afternoon so we quit running a little bit early. The Corteco car is running great and we're right on plan. We went out and ran quicker today than we have all month. I'm really proud of the way the guys are working. Right now we've been trying to make the car happy getting around the race track. It's not that we're working specifically on race or qualifying because each change that we've been making is improving the car."

Position: 13th
Speed: 228.742 mph
Time: 39.3456 seconds

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

"All in all, I would say I'm very pleased with the day. Again, the Cure Autism Now/HomeMed Pharmacy crew was able to get through a bunch of changes and we were able to evaluate a lot of data. We're still pretty focused on the race and I feel really comfortable with where we are right now. The crew has done such a great job, we've had no mechanical issues and our Toyota engine has been rock solid."

Position: 24th
Speed: 226.062 mph
Time: 39.8120 seconds
