Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I'm looking forward to Mid-Ohio because it is the next opportunity to improve our road course program. We just haven't been as good in that area this year as I want to be and this weekend is the next shot for the Motorola team to step things up. We just need to work really hard to get comfortable right away on Friday, get a good starting position and be aggressive in the race on Sunday. We have to believe we can do that."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Mid-Ohio is a great, but very physical race track. It's a track that I've always enjoyed in the past but not always had the best luck. It's a busy week because of all of our sponsor commitments but an important one also because we spend an entire day touring the various Honda facilities. The best thing is that it also gives us a chance to thank all the Honda employees who work so hard to give us perfect engines week-in and week-out."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"At the Mid-Ohio open test a few weeks ago, the NYSE car was very fast and that made me really happy. I really like the course because it's a physically challenging track. It's an important race for Honda because it's so close to many of the Honda plants in Ohio and I'd like nothing more than to win the first IndyCar Series race at Mid-Ohio."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I think that the test at Mid-Ohio earlier this year helped us. With the smoother surface, we are going to see better grip levels. The speeds were impressive at the test and I think we'll see even more this weekend. I am looking forward to going back to Mid-Ohio and trying to getthe Canadian Club team their first road course win."

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"Last weekend helped the oso*fresh team gain the momentum we needed heading into Mid-Ohio. I am excited to be racing at Mid-Ohio because it is a challenging track. Now we just need to build on last weekend's performance and try to get into victory lane."
