SONOMA, Calif. -- Listed below are times and quotes from Panther drivers Tomas Scheckter and Tomas Enge following the first day of practice at Infineon Raceway.

Coverage of the Argent Mortgage Indy Grand Prix will be provided live on ESPN at 3:30 p.m. (EDT) with addition coverage provided by the IMS Radio network.

Tomas Enge:

"It's only Friday, and tomorrow is another important day for us. I'm pretty satisfied with how we ran today in the RockStar Chevy. We know where our advantages are on the track and know our weakness points. The key is to improve on our weakness points and see what happens tomorrow. Definitely the handling of the car is not bad, and I know it's going to be interesting this weekend."

Tomas Scheckter:

"We're not terribly concerned with our speed because I'm still learning the track. On road tracks like this you just need time to learn the course. It takes time out here when you don't have loads of experience. I know the Pennzoil Chevy will be solid and quick when we race on Sunday. Right now we're just working through everything and hoping to do well in qualifications tomorrow."
