Scott Sharp -- #8 Delphi/Dallara/Toyota/Firestone

"Everybody on the Delphi team has been working really hard today. Andy (Borme) and the guys have been making changes but we just haven't quite found the sweet spot yet. Certainly, the track conditions have changed quite a lot since we were here testing. You have to add close to 30 degrees of ambient temperature, and track temperature and then throw in the different types of tire rubber from the different series on the track. So it's a bit of a curve ball right now but we're working hard to get things going."

Combined Practice Session Results
Position: 16
Speed: 167.063 mph
Time: 21.5488 seconds
Laps: 74
