NOTE 1 - BACKGROUND STATS...Ranks fourth in the points standings...Has three top-three finishes, four top-five finishes, and eight top-ten finishes in nine starts...In 2001, finished a career-best third in the points standings, after ranking first or second most of the season...In 2001,had five top-three finishes and completed every lap of every race...Earned the Owners' Championship for Rocketsports...Has 30 career top-five finishes...In 2000, scored his first career Trans-Am win at San Diego...Voted "Most Improved Driver" for 1998...Won the "Rookie of the Year" title in 1996.

On the cancellation of the qualifying session and the morning practice session... "Oh, well. We know we can go faster than our previous practice sessions. We've made some pretty significant changes to the car based how our car was handling and Paul's set-up. We haven't been able to see if we guessed right on the change given the cancellation of both sessions, but we'll have a session tomorrow morning before the race. But based on what we know, we're confident we did the right thing.

If it rains during the race tomorrow... (Laughs) "If we race in the rain, it will be a "He who finishes" festival. Let's hope for sunshine."
