Homestead: Andretti Green Racing qualifying report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Boost Mobile/Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone (qualified 7th):
"Overall it was a productive day for the Boost Mobile/Motorola car. The changes we made in practice today made the car better which is what you hope for on a race weekend. The last run in the afternoon session was the best the car has felt yet. To go from that and then end up faster in qualifying is a good sign and it makes me believe we have a strong car for tomorrow's race."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone (qualified 15th):
"We didn't really work on the qualifying setup for the #11 car this morning; we concentrated on the race because we know it will be tough tomorrow. Consistency is going to be the key. I worked on the car during my timed laps and we were able to gain some speed. I'm confident for the race. It's hard to race at home so we want to do well."

Marco Andretti, #26 Team Venom Energy Dallara/Honda/Firestone (qualified 8th):
"We had good speed in the Venom car for qualifying today. Considering we've been focusing on race setup I'm pleased with where we will start for the race tomorrow. I believe a race can be won from eighth and winning the race is the highest goal I can have. Hopefully everything will fall into place."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone (qualified 19th):
"We struggled to find speed during qualifying today and that is a little frustrating. Tomorrow is another day and I think we have a better race setup for the car. We will keep working to finish the season strong."
