"We're happy with today, we only did a couple of laps. The Pennzoil Panther guys and myself just wanted to make sure things were good for tomorrow and - most importantly - Saturday. Right now we look to be in good shape. We weren't going to use a lot of track time anyway, so the rain didn't effect us a lot. We had a list of stuff we concentrated on and we got all that taken care of today."

"It's good to get a run done in the afternoon, we were glad the weather cleared up. The Panther Racing guys wanted to keeping taking out downforce to get ready for qualifications on Saturday. So today we were able to go out and get some good runs, and we'll continue to take out more downforce. I hope we can run tomorrow, I've heard there's supposed to be more ran. I'm pretty confident, it feels like we've got a good car and we have more speed. The big question is how the weather changes and how we make adjustments to it."

Notes: Mark Taylor's fast lap of 219.565 mph is his quickest speed this month .... Scheckter has remained the top Chevrolet.
