Kanaan Qualifies Team 7-Eleven Car in Fourth Position at Kentucky

SPARTA, Ky. (Aug. 12, 2006) - Team 7-Eleven driver Tony Kanaan recorded a speed of 216.766 miles per hour (24.5795 seconds) around the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway and will start from the fourth position in the #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone for Sunday afternoon's running of the Meijer Indy 300.

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"Team 7-Eleven worked on race setups all morning and we never did a qualifying setup. I have to give thanks to Dario (Franchitti) because he's who did the qualifying simulations for the team. I know the car is good in race setup and just wanted to get it in the field and close to the front."
