TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  “The basic focus of today was to shake down our primary car.  We started making some smaller adjustments at the end of the session out there, but haven’t really gotten into the more in-depth changes to the Target car.  We’ll start on that tomorrow.”
 
Target Chip Ganassi Racing will compete in the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 27 (12:00 pm ET on ABC).
