Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I am happy with our starting position, sure I wish that we would've gotten the pole, but the Motorola car will start on the second row. Hopefully we can keep the car up front and finish the season with a solid finish."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We had much better speed this morning so I don't know what happened. We made a couple of changes trying to get the pole for the Team 7-Eleven guys but we went backward a little bit. It's a long race tomorrow and there are a lot of chances to pass here, so I'm not too worried about where we qualified."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The qualifying run was pretty easy. We never really worked on the qualifying setup today so the run went a little bit better than we thought it would. We spent most of the practice time focusing on the race car. We still have some decisions to make over night and hopefully we make the right ones. It would be nice for the NYSE team to finish strong, especially after the year we've had. We've been right there but unable to capitalize so it would be nice to win tomorrow."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The Formula Dream team concentrated on the race setup during the practice sessions so I am not surprised with my qualifying result. The #27 car is good and we were able to prepare the car for tomorrow so I am looking forward to the race."
