ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT IZOD INDYCAR SERIES NOTES AND QUOTES, POST-QUALIFYING PEAK ANTIFREEZE & MOTOR OIL INDY 300

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"I think we hit the setup on the Venom car about as good as we were going to for qualifying today. We can't expect much more than that as far as our speed, but I'm optimistic for the race. It's always different when you're on the race track with 28 other cars but I think it can be done from fifth. Hopefully we can back that up tomorrow night."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 ETHANOL USA- TEAM IZOD CAR

"We went a little bit more aggressive for qualifying with the Ethanol USA-Team IZOD car. Tony got a little bit loose during his qualifying run so we made a couple of changes to compensate for that and I think that ended up hurting us on the first lap. But, that is a lot better than we've been on ovals this year. This team has been really pushing to fix that situation and we have results for it. It's always nice when you go to work on something that you get a result."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN/PLANTERS CAR

"We had a better car this morning. We made a couple changes for qualifying, looking for a bit more speed, and I think it actually worked against us. It's still a decent lap time, but definitely not as much as we were looking for."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"The GoDaddy car was really loose during our qualifying run today. I had to lift a few times which probably caused me to lose some time, but it's a long 300 miles tomorrow night. I have a great pit crew and I'm confident we will be able to move up during the race, but I wish we were starting farther up the grid."
