Driver:  Danica Patrick

Car: #7 Boost Mobile/Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Danica Patrick: "I'm okay with the decision not to run this afternoon. We only have some many tires available and miles left on the engine, so we need to make smart decisions and be sure we are using our tools efficiently. We only have two more practice days, so we need to make the most out of the time remaining. Hope the weather is in our favor tomorrow."

Driver: Tony Kanaan
Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Tony Kanaan: "The 7-Eleven car has tried every set up imaginable so I asked my teammate Hideki (Mutoh) if I could drive his car for a practice run. They had a different set up than I did and I wanted to compare the two cars. I think as a team we are still trying to find the missing link. Today was a short day for us, but it was still a learning day. We're not quite where we need to be for the race, but I think we are getting closer each day, and tomorrow is a new day."

Driver: Marco Andretti
Car: #26 Team Venom Energy Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Marco Andretti: "Because of the weather, the #26 car was only able to run for a short amount of time this morning and with the air temperature was so cool, I think we had more downforce than we would normally. The car was really easy to drive but we still didn't have the speed that we needed. Team Venom Energy will have to wait until tomorrow to see where we really stand."

Driver: Hideki Mutoh
Car: #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Hideki Mutoh: "The #27 isn't quite ready for the race but we are getting closer. The guys worked hard and were able to fix the wiring problems. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get much track time in today. I wasn't happy with the way the car was handling and the speed we were running and Tony (Kanaan) was able to reaffirm some of the things I was telling my crew. I am thankful to have a teammate like Tony who can drive my car and give such good feedback. I think tomorrow will be an important day for the Formula Dream car."
