Indy 500: Andretti Autosport Fast Friday report

JOHN ANDRETTI, ...

JOHN ANDRETTI, #43 TEAM WINDOW WORLD CAR

"We didn't think we'd even get on track today. The weather seemed to hold off. We're still struggling to find speed, to be honest. We're working at it and taking downforce off the car. We've been working with teammates and following a lot of different things. Hopefully by tomorrow we'll find our speed so when we go to qualify, we'll put the Team Window World car in the show."

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"I think we made some progress today with the Venom car, but it can be hard to know for sure. Things here can change so fast from one run to the next - sometimes without even making any changes to the car. The field is really tight this year and there are a number of cars posting quick speeds. We had pretty consistent times today and were able to stay inside the top nine, so let's hope we can do the same tomorrow."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"We've done most of what we can do right now to get the speed out of the car. We're really trimmed and I'm pretty happy with the balance. The IZOD car is pretty neutral. We're just going to do the best we can tomorrow. Hopefully, it will grease up a little bit tomorrow and get slick. I think that will fall into our favor because we might have a better balance than some out there. I would just love to qualify tomorrow and go race."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"It was a good day for the 7-Eleven team, I think. I had a realistic speed in mind today for a goal and I think we achieved that. Now, we'll just have to see how things go tomorrow. As a team, I think we did what we could. I'm obviously concentrating on tomorrow, but the real thing is a week from Sunday."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"Today's practice session was a great improvement from yesterday, for sure. The GoDaddy car is dialed-in, but we still have some work to do before Pole Day. But, I feel really confident on where we are at."
