BROOKLYN, Mich. (July 29, 2006) - XM Satellite Radio driver Bryan Herta qualified 12th for Sunday's running of the Firestone Indy 400 at Michigan International Speedway. Herta, who is the defending race winner, posted a best-lap speed of 213.207 miles per hour (33.7700 seconds) on the first lap of his qualifying attempt.

The 11th of 14 IndyCar Series events will be broadcast live by ABC Sports beginning at 3:30 p.m. (EDT). The entire IndyCar Series schedule is also carried live on XM Satellite Radio channel 145, the exclusive home of the IndyCar Series.

Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone:
"It's good to be back at a track where the XM Satellite Radio team dominated at last year. I wish we would have qualified a little bit better than what we did but the car feels really good in race trim, so I feel good about tomorrow's race."
