The green flag drops on the second race of the 2006 Indy Racing League® IndyCar® Series schedule at 3:45 p.m. (EDT). ESPN will provide live coverage of the event beginning at 3:30 p.m. (EDT). Sunday's Honda Grand Prix can also be heard live by XM Satellite Radio subscribers on XM channel 145, the exclusive home of the IndyCar Series.

Bryan Herta, #7 XM Satellite Radio Dallara/Honda/Firestone:
"This was fun but it was a little more fun last year when I was on the pole. We just picked up a little understeer in the #7 XM Satellite Radio car and couldn't quite dial it out in the time that we had available to us. We've got a good starting spot and I know we have a good car, so we'll just try and improve and go from there."
