MIAMI -- Scott Pruett put the silver and green livery on his No. 7 Motorock/Jaguar R Performance XKR to good use Friday afternoon by setting the fastest time in second-round practice for Sunday's Motorock Miami 100 at the Grand Prix Americas street course in downtown Miami. The two-time Drivers' Champion, who is seeking to clinch his third title this weekend, toured the 1.15-mile circuit with a lap at 53.526 seconds at 77.346 miles per hour.

"We're still learning the track," said Pruett. "It's really hard to learn a track in the rain, and this morning's session was wet. The car is getting better, but our gearing chart is way off. She's still not where we want her to be."

Michael Lewis set the second fastest time in the No. 12 Westward Tools Car Available at Grainger Jaguar XKR, ahead of Randy Ruhlman (No. 49 Preformed Line Products/Coyote Closures Chevrolet Corvette) and rookie Bobby Sak (No. 10 Revolution Motorsports Chevrolet Corvette).

Qualifying is scheduled for tomorrow at 11:30 a.m. The Motorock Miami 100 is scheduled to start at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28. The race will air on a tape-delayed basis on SPEED on Friday, Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
