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

"Today was a real good day for the Delphi crew. Things are going well. It was our first chance to get serious about our race setup. We'll continue working on our car during the next couple of days to perfect the balance on our long runs. I'm sure most of the other guys are doing the same as us, getting prepared for the race."

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

"We had an okay day today on the Corteco team. We were just out making long runs and trying to get the car nice and consistent for the race. We're actually in our "T" car right now working on race set-up and the primary car is in pieces and they're rebuilding it to get it ready for the race. We'll run the back-up car the remainder of the week and then probably roll out the primary car on Sunday just to make sure everything is good for the race."

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

"It went really quite smooth today for the Cure Autism Now/HomeMed Pharmacy crew. We got through what we wanted to evaluate. Obviously, we focused on race trim, which was what we had been working on up until Friday. We shifted back today, and we were immediately back to where we were. We worked on running in traffic with Scott and Al, and we'll continue to do so the rest of the week."
