Successful Indy test for Kurt Busch

"Today was an ideal day," he pointed out. "I couldn't have asked for anything better as a rookie than to come to Indy to have the track prepped the way it was and then to have the perfect weather conditions.

"To crawl, then walk, and then walk and then run, I think the proper thing is to go out and experience this car at another oval track and get into a race and experience what the buffeting is and the movement of the car when all the downforce changes," he summed up.

"I need to get more comfortable in the IndyCar because on a day like today, I'm white knuckle, my hands were tense and firm - and that was only after ten laps!"
