Dan Wheldon on the Bombardier 500k

"I always enjoy the night race at Texas. I think the entire Klein Tools/Jim Beam crew is looking forward to it. We've run near the front all year and we've got that one point lead over TK (Tony Kanaan) in the championship so we know we have to be at our best. I don't think there is added pressure because we are leading the points. We put enough pressure on ourselves every week to get the win. Texas is going to be very competitive. I think you'll see everyone running together in a big group so the key is going to be making sure you have a fast car that handles well in traffic."

Tony Cotman, Team Manager, on the Bombardier 500k

"The Klein Tools/Jim Beam crew is looking forward to Texas. We have run well in the last few races and Dan got his first top-three finish here last fall. Our teammate Tony Kanaan had a pretty good Firestone test there with the new package so we have a good feel for what is going on. I think you will find that we are going to be packed together so it is important to qualify up front and then hang around to the end."
