"It was a bit of a struggle this afternoon and we didn't get the laps we wanted. The rain delay took a bit longer than we thought it would. Once we got back out there, the Menards/Johns Manville car was really good, but we were just dealing with a lot of push in Turn Two. We brought the car back in and made an adjustment, but then it screwed up how we were running in (Turn) One. The third a fourth turns felt great all day. Luckily, being at Indianapolis means we'll get the track time we need to get ready for qualifying on Saturday."

Tomas Scheckter:
218.893 mph
41.1160 seconds

"We got a lot of stuff done that we needed to today. We were able to try quite a lot of things today with the car, and it was a constructive day at the Speedway. Once again we were the fastest Chevy and the motor really feels quick out here. The Pennzoil Panther guys did a great job and we'll get back to work tomorrow."

NOTES:
*Scheckter has been the fastest Chevrolet for both practice days.
