Kosuke Matsuura, #55 Panasonic ARTA Panoz/Honda/Firestone:

"After qualifying, we were working to find a good setup for the race. Yesterday my car was push-loose, push-loose. In turbulence, the car was so difficult to drive. We decided to put more downforce today, and I was able to run in the pack. At the end of today, we found a little bit better setup. I don't know if I have the car right now to lead the race as it is difficult to lead the pack, but hopefully I have a car that can finish in the top three."
