MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

Finished the first session in P13 "We've got some work to do on the Venom car overnight, for sure. But, I think we can get where we need to be. We were experimenting a bit today, but now we're going to go to what we know and hope that it is the right thing for us."

MIKE CONWAY, #27 TEAM WINDOW WORLD CARES CAR

Posted the fifth-quickest time in the first practice session "I think we're OK, overall. We just went the wrong direction a little bit in the second practice, so we didn't get much time out of the car, but we'll be alright. We'll revert some changes, see what the other guys learned and be ready to go in the morning."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #28 TEAM DHL/SUN DROP CITRUS SODA CAR

Finished P8 in the second practice session "It was an up-and-down day with the rain. It kind of knocked us out of our rhythm a little bit. But, we're eighth and within reach of the top five, certainly, so we'll go to work tonight. The DHL/Sun Drop car is definitely a lot better than it was last year, so that is a big positive. The gap is only going to close tomorrow; all the competition is going to get tighter, so we're going to have to make some improvements tonight."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

Posted the second-quickest lap time for the Andretti Autosport drivers in the second session "I feel good about practice today. After looking at timing and scoring, the GoDaddy.com car isn't that far off the leaders. I'm hopeful we'll have a strong qualifying run tomorrow. Overall as a team, our cars are solid so I think it will be a good weekend."
