TCGR Quoteboard
 
Dario Franchitti:  “This morning we felt we had a good balance and reasonable speed in the Target car.  But then when it came time to do it for real the balance and the grip went away in a hurry for some reason.  I think all in all we lost over a mile an hour throughout the run which is way too inconsistent.  I spoke to Scott after his run and it sounded very familiar in terms of how the balance went off.  We’re just .1 of a mile an hour apart so you can’t get much closer than that I guess.  Tomorrow we’re going to practice some race things and push Honda to come up with some improvements so we can get where we need to be for the race weekend.”
