IRL: Indy 500: Wheldon day 11 summary

Dan Wheldon, ...

Dan Wheldon, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We are going to practice again tomorrow with the Klein Tools/Jim Beam car and we will continue to prepare for the race.  I would much rather spend more time preparing so I know I can sleep well at night. Otherwise it plays on your mind how to make the car better.  It's a long race but if you go into it not fully prepared it is going to be an even longer one.  I felt that my race car was comfortable this morning but I think we can perfect it a little bit more.  That's what we're going to work on tomorrow."

Tony Cotman, Team Manager, #26 Klein Tools/Jim Beam Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We've definitely made a lot of ground on the Klein Tools/Jim Beam car from yesterday.  We made a few changes overnight which were in the right direction but we still need one more day of practice to just consolidate where we are at.  We feel pretty good but we'd like just a little more track time."
