Qualifying Results

Johnny Unser and the Jonathan Byrd/Cunningham Racing team continue to search for more speed today, but so far have been able to only post a fast speed of 165.487. They will be making some more changes to the set-ups for this afternoon's practice, hoping to get the car ready to? to move up through the field during tomorrow's race. The unofficial starting grid, listed below, has Unser listed in 19th starting position.

On another note, Jim Guthrie spun in turn 3 during this morning's practice, making a 180 degree turn and hitting the wall hard. The car suffered extensive damage, and Guthrie was flown to the nearby hospital in stable condition, but with complaints of difficulty breathing.

We will have another recap after this evening's practice, along with more audio clips from Johnny posted on our web site.
