INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- Panther Racing's drivers logged more than 300 laps during the last official practice day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The team is looking to fine tune the race setup on all three of its Chevrolets in preparation for the 89th Running of the Indianapolis 500. Listed below are notes and quotes from Friday's practice session:

Tomas Scheckter #4 Pennzoil Panther Racing

"We've did a lot of solid work today. It's a long month, but today was an important one for all of our guys. Our Pennzoil Platinum car is strong in traffic and Chevrolet has given a great deal of power for the race. The confidence level is very high in the Panther garage, and we feel like we've got a great shot on raceday."

Tomas Enge #2 RockStar Panther Racing

"We wanted to make sure we got plenty of laps in traffic today and we will get the speed we need by race day. The RockStar team is working so hard every day out here and I hope we can make it pay off for them. This month has been a great experience for me and I can't wait to race in this great event."

Buddy Lazier #95 Byrd Brothers/Panther Racing

"The car is making a lot of sense. It is a really, really good race car. I'm able to follow very closely behind other cars and at the same time keep getting faster and faster. We spent the last few minutes of today on pit stop practice, and my guys were laying down some good speeds of their own."
