Edmonton: Andretti Autosport Friday report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"The Venom car didn't roll off quite as strong as we'd hoped it would. But we made good use of practice today and we're chipping away at it. We'll use tomorrow's morning session to re-evaluate what we've learned and should be in better shape for qualifying."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"Practice 2 was just a messy session (with all the traffic). We never put a lap together on new tires. The good news is we've got some more speed in the car, but it's a question of how much. We have a lot of homework to do tonight. It's going to be a pivotal discussion to see what we can do find the speed we need."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"This is a tough track for us, for sure. We're a lot better this year than we have been, but we need to find a lot more. We have a lot of work to do. Ryan and I are trying to put our heads together and we're going to figure something out. It's not going to be easy. We'll make a plan together; we'll start on different paths in the morning and then meet somewhere before qualifying."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"The time sheets don't show much, but we are making progress with the GoDaddy car. The track was really green this morning, but was better this afternoon. It was hard to get a solid feel on the car during the second session because of traffic, but we are headed in the right direction."
