Note 2 - 2003 Stats. First in the Drivers' Championship point standings.Won the season opener at St. Petersburg form the pole position, third place finish at Long Beach and won Mosport from the pole position.

On his race this afternoon. "We focused on what our weaknesses were. We came up here on Thursday did some testing here. We worked on the high mileage tires, which is what we thought our weakness was in Long Beach.

"The closing stages were a bit tight with all the oil that someone lay down on the track. You could see the oil and I tried my best to stay off of the slippery spots because any small mistake, slowing down too much or spinning would have been to the other guy's advantage

"The car was good. I never really thought we could get the set-up and accommodate it quickly with all the rain we had on Friday I didn't think we would get a good qualifying car. Fortunately the Rocketsports Racing guys gave me a great car. What can I say about this Jaguar she's a sweet cat.

"The tires really helped out today, when I raced in Trans-Am back in the early 90's the tire supplier never really cared about the product they gave us. The BFGoodrich g-force tires we use rock. BFGoodrich really cares about the product that they put out on the track."
