Indy 500: Andretti Autosport day two report

JOHN ANDRETTI, ...

JOHN ANDRETTI, #43 TEAM WINDOW WORLD CAR
* Completed 39 laps, with a top speed of 222.131 mph

"We really focused on running race set-ups today. We haven't gone into qualifying runs yet. I think we've got a really good balance on the Window World Dallara. We got in some traffic, moved around and just tried a couple of different things to test down force. The weather conditions right now are almost ideal-overcast and very little wind. A lot of people are advantage of the track time and we're one of them. We look forward to the start tomorrow."

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR
* Finished practice in P9 with a best lap speed of 224.489 mph

"We made some progress with the Venom car today and I think we're heading in the right direction. Unfortunately the rain cut practice a bit short and we didn't get to a couple of changes that we're optimistic about. Hopefully the rain will hold off tomorrow and we can keep working and find the speed we're looking for."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR
* Ran a best lap speed of 220.975 mph

"We threw some things at the IZOD car today that really didn't get the results we were looking for, so we're going to make some big changes for tomorrow and see what that does for us. It's just another part of the process. The good thing is that we're getting all this stuff done somewhat early. The team is working really hard and they always give me great race cars, so we're stay after it."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR
* Finished the day in P5 with a best lap speed of 225.524

"Today was OK. It was a smooth day. We're still working toward getting a good balance for the Team 7-Eleven car, but it's still early. It's only Sunday and we still have six days to go until the 'first' big day."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR
* Ended the practice session in P13 with a top speed of 223.382

"Today's practice was very productive overall. The GoDaddy car has been consistent during the first two days, so we have been able to try out a few different setups, which is good. Hopefully the rain doesn't become too much of an issue this week."
