CASTRONEVES' THIRD PACES TOYOTA IN PHOENIX QUALIFYING

- For the second consecutive race, Marlboro Team Penske drivers Helio Castroneves and Sam Hornish Jr. led the Toyota contingent in qualifying for Saturday's XM Satellite Radio Indy 200 at the Phoenix International Raceway. Once again, Castroneves was the highest Toyota-powered competitor in third, while Hornish was sixth.

- The Target Toyota of Scott Dixon gave Toyota three cars in the top 10 in today's qualifying. Dixon, who finished second here a year ago, placed eighth. His Target teammates Darren Manning and Ryan Briscoe were 11th and 14th, respectively.

- Sam Hornish Jr. and Helio Castroneves both will be looking for their second career Phoenix wins this weekend. Hornish won the event in 2001, while Castroneves was victorious in 2002.

- Neither Patrick Carpentier (Red Bull Toyota) or Paul Dana qualified today after suffering damage in two separate practice incidents. Carpentier's incident occurred in the second session, while Dana made contact in the first session and did not practice in the afternoon.
