IPS: IRL: Chicagoland: Andretti Green Racing qualifying report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I thought that lap was alright. We went almost as quick as we did in our qualifying simulation in practice, so I don't think that was too bad. That was much better than a lot of the qualifying runs we've had this year with the Motorola car, so I'm pretty happy with that overall." Tony Kanaan #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone "I think it was a solid run out of the Team 7-Eleven car. It doesn't matter where you start here. We've got a pretty good race car and that's what we're worried about. I've got to win tomorrow and that's what I'm going to try and do."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I'm not very happy at all with our result. I am not a huge fan of this kind of qualifying. It's frustrating as a driver because you just sit there and try to get as low as you can. The only good thing is that I feel like I got everything I could out of the NYSE car. Our race car is pretty good so I think we'll be competitive tomorrow."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I was surprised because we ran a lot quicker than that this morning. Quite honestly, I think the track just slowed down. So we were just sitting there watching the usual suspects go through, thinking 'this could be close.' But what can I say - the guys on the Canadian Club team have built me a great car and my engineers have been doing it right."

Jaime Camara #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"After the first session, the car was good. We did some minor changes after the first session and it worked. The track was very slippery during the second session because the ARCA cars had just finished and put down a different type of rubber, but the car was great for qualifying. Even though we are lacking a little bit of speed, I think the oso*fresh car should be good for tomorrow's race. I really think I'll be up there at the end to fight for the win. It is just too bad we are ending the season the way we wanted it to start. I hope I can give the oso*fresh team a win to end the season."
