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

"It was another wild and crazy day and another great job by the Delphi team. The guys have been busting their tails all week. We went out this morning and track conditions were a lot different so we switched a lot of stuff and they really busted their tails so we could get back out and run so well this afternoon. I think all around that we are in good shape. I don't really know where we stack up with the rest of the field, but I do know that we are in good shape."

Position:  2nd

Speed: 230.829 mph
Time: 38.9899 seconds

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

"We had been trying new things the last couple of days and we had decided that if they didn't work that we would re-group and go back to where we started and that's what we did today so my times are reflecting exactly that. We didn't find the speed we were looking for so now what we do is put four smooth laps together, get up the grid as far as we can and then go for a good race set-up and I feel we do have a very good car for the race. We just went searching for a good qualifier and never found it so we just went back to where we started and that will be ok."

Position:   19th

Speed: 226.874 mph
Time: 39.46695 seconds

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

"It was a very reasonable day today for the Cure Autism Now/HomeMed Pharmacy team. We did lose quite a bit of time for trying some different set-ups on the car and we ended up going back to where we started so we were down for a little while. The guys have been doing a really good job. I think qualifying is certainly going to be interesting tomorrow because today everyone was fighting the conditions a little bit with the wind and the heat. I'm pleased going into qualifying tomorrow and I think we can solidly put it in the show."

Position:   11th

Speed: 229.122 mph
Time: 39.2803 seconds
