Quote on the Firestone Indy 200

"I'm really excited for the Nashville race. The last couple of years the Delphi car hasn't been the fastest car in qualifying, but we have been able to turn it into one of the best cars throughout the course of the race. We've gotten the Delphi car into the top three in both Nashville races. The crowd is always strong and very supportive and this year they are going to see an action packed evening!"
