Q&A: Al Unser Jr.

Alex, you know, a great talent. He's got a lot of experience. He does a good job on the ovals, as well. So he's with Eric Bachelart, the Conquest team. They're one of the teams that truly get the most out of what they've got. So hopefully he'll do some more running with us and continue to do well.

Q:
A driver who is running really well at Toronto before some contact towards the end of the race is Paul Tracy.

Al Unser Jr:
Paul just needs to... he's with KV Racing, which is teammates to Mario Moraes. They're one of the Champ Car teams that have come over. They've got a great race team. Paul needs to run more often with us. If he did that, then he would definitely be in the top 10 if not the top five.

Q:
The last two are Sarah Fisher.....

Al Unser Jr:
Sarah just needs to do some more running with us. She's got great, great sponsorship coming in, working really hard. She's a wonderful lady, a lot of talent. The more she runs, the better she'll be.

Q:
Finally last but certainly not least, Milka Duno, who is going to be sharing a car with Tomas Scheckter.

Al Unser Jr:
Milka is improving more and more each time she drives. We hope to see her continue to do so. You know, with Reinbold, she's got a good team.

Q:
All right, Al. Appreciate your time today. Any final thoughts about the second half?

Al Unser Jr:
I'm very excited about the second half. Going up to Edmonton, you'll see PT running up there again, Alex Tagliani I think will be at the front of the grid, Justin Wilson will be at the front. You know, you've kind of got some really showing that if you put some real good shoes in the car that they'll run up front, especially on the road courses. The ovals, we're working as a league, the team, the owners, the drivers, everybody's working to improve the cars on the ovals, and we'll find out if the changes that we've made to the cars will improve the racing at Kentucky and the rest of the season.
