Andretti Autosport Birmingham test 2010-02-24

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR:

"If anything today we were able to make the 26 car different. It started to feel more like a race car and we got some normal qualities back that we've been looking for. I'm a little disappointed with our time, but we're heading in the right direction. I think we'll see good results from the Venom car if we stick to our plan."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR:

"It was a bit of a strange day, but an expected day for Team IZOD. We had to get some things sorted out for my liking and we went back to the transporter a number of times to do that. They were lengthy changes, but we got it sorted to where we could run for about two hours.

"Barber, like Sonoma, is a place where you have to know your way around to get a good time around it. It has a lot of blind entries and exits, so I needed to learn the track. I took my time with that and we took our time getting the settings right on the car. By the end of the day, I was finally able to start to push. Hopefully, it's not too cold tomorrow and we'll get some better track time."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR:

"It was a lot better than I expected. It was good to be back in the Team 7-Eleven car. It's a tough track, actually, and it takes you a while to learn it. I think it was a productive day for us. We made huge improvements on the car from the start of the practice to the end. Hopefully, the weather will be a little bit better tomorrow. It's our last practice day before the first race of the season, so we need to take advantage of it."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GO DADDY.COM CAR:

"Today's test was definitely a challenge. The Go Daddy car wasn't handling the way that I would've liked. The cold weather doesn't help either. So tonight we're going to take a look at the data and see what we can learn from it. Hopefully, tomorrow's session will go better." Andretti Autosport sponsors
