Indy 500: Andretti Autosport Bump Day report

JOHN ANDRETTI, ...

JOHN ANDRETTI, #43 TEAM WINDOW WORLD CAR

"Fortunately, we were first out in qualifying today. After making some big changes yesterday, we are happy with the Window World Dallara's performance. We went back out to do some race runs after qualifying, so we're still learning more about the car. We'll be leaning against my teammates again to find out more in order to prep for next week. I'm really happy we'll all be racing next weekend. From my experience here, I've learned if you're in it, you can win it."

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"I'm confident with our race trim and I think the Venom team is looking pretty strong right now. We're ready to go as of today, but it's Indianapolis so you can't get too excited too early - but if we had to race right now I think we're looking pretty good. I'm super happy for John, Tony and their guys, they put up great efforts to get qualified today. I don't think any of us are starting as high in the field as we'd like - but a lot can happen in 500 miles."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"This is quite a life. Today was very stressful for the whole 7-Eleven team, but it is what it is. Yesterday we went for the pole, but today, we have no idea what happened (with the accident this morning) because I wasn't even up to speed yet. But, I know this - I know I can pass cars, so I think next Sunday is going to be a lot of fun."

"I spent my first eight years here starting from inside the first two rows and now I get to see what it's like starting in the last one. I'm going to enjoy the "Last Row Party" and move forward."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"The end of qualifying today was so intense. I'm so happy that all the Andretti cars got into the field. The GoDaddy car had a few good practice runs today so I feel good going into race weekend."
