Scott Sharp - #8 Delphi Dallara /Honda/Firestone:

"It was a good day for the Delphi Fernandez team. We really haven't gotten ourselves into qualifying mode just yet. We are continuing to work away on the basic car and are in more of a race mode than a qualifying mode. I think we are in good shape right now, and continuing to learn more about the Dallara. This is really the first chance we have had to experiment with some things. We switched to the Dallara right before the Homestead race, and haven't had any testing on an oval since then. You really don't have much time to try different things. Even with the rain, you have a lot more time than usual and we are planning to use that over the next week to familiarize ourselves much more."
