Iowa: Andretti Autosport race report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"It's definitely a disappointment to start third and finish where we did. The handling for the Venom car just didn't make sense. We made all the right adjustments and we were still too loose. I wouldn't be surprised if we end up finding something broken on the car. We just weren't able to make it happen today on the '26' side, but I'm happy for my teammate (Tony Kanaan) and the '11' crew."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 ETHANOL USA-TEAM IZOD CAR

"We had an awesome day. We should have been on the podium with Tony today. We had an incident on pit lane and got black-flagged for it. We had to fight our way back up to the top 10. We had the Ethanol USA-Team IZOD car running in the top three. I'm really disappointed in the end. It should have been a great day for us. Congratulations to Tony; he deserves this for sure."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"I have to thank my team and the entire 7-Eleven crew. They did a great job. I had a great car. I have to thank my teammates, Marco (Andretti) and Ryan (Hunter-Reay), who came over after qualifying. I was very disappointed. I made a mistake during qualifying and I was pretty down. They talked to me for 45 minutes and cheered me up. Marco gave me a little bit of his setup and Ryan actually helped me with the setup, putting it together for today. It was a great job as a team and it feels good."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"It was a challenging race for the GoDaddy car. We had a good car, but the longer the race went on, the more difficult the car got, handling-wise. I wish we had a better day, but we'll take a top-10 finish."
