IPS: IRL: Mid-Ohio: Andretti Green Racing qualifying report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone "This is by far the best I've done on a road course. This is a big turnaround for us. I'm really proud of my engineer, Martin (Parė), and I'm really proud of the team. It feels so good to have the Motorola car on the front row, and not on an oval, but on a road course. This is a big deal for me right now."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone "It was a great team effort and I've got to congratulate Danica (Patrick) on her run. She's been working hard on her out laps and I think it paid off. AGR did a great job today. We made a little mistake on the setup of the Team 7-Eleven car for the Firestone Fast Six Shootout but it's better to find out now than to try and find it in the warm-up. We have a good car for the race and the people who we are fighting for the championship are behind us so I'm happy about that."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone "It was a great day for Andretti Green Racing to put four cars in the top five. I was much happier when the NYSE car was on the pole but we'll take fourth and get ready for the race."

Dario Franchitti, #27 Canadian Club Dallara/Honda/Firestone "I'm disappointed in the way the shootout went. I felt really good with the Canadian Club car after the one-lap qualifying run and knew I had more in it. I thought we were going to challenge for the pole, but had to come in for fuel with only a couple of minutes left and didn't have enough time to put down a good lap."

IPS:

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone "Qualifying was pretty good. I could have been quicker, but for the last two laps, I was behind Ryan Justice. I couldn't put down a good lap because I was caught behind traffic. Now we just have to find the best setup for the race. I'm not happy with the car right now, but we're going to make some changes and we'll see in the warm up tomorrow what the oso*fresh car has for the race. It is really tough to pass here, so finding a good setup for the car is very important. It is a long race and with just one set of tires, it isn't going to be easy."
