IPS: IRL: Nashville: Andretti Green Racing Friday notes

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"The run was pretty good. The car felt dialed in. It's just unfortunate that we didn't go any faster with the Motorola car. It's driving me crazy that we go into qualifying and we don't go faster. I have no explanation as to why. I need some clear answers on this so it doesn't happen again."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I think I got an okay lap out of the Team 7-Eleven car today. We did what we expected to and I don't think I had anything left in the car. We set a goal for qualifying and we reached it. The two guys starting in front of me (Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti) are both ahead of me in the championship so my goal tomorrow is to finish ahead of those guys and hopefully win the race."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"The qualifying run seemed alright but I think the track got a little faster as the session went on so it was definitely a disadvantage for the NYSE car to have to qualify early. I'm not real happy with where we are starting but I proved last year that you can pass on this track so we'll see."

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

"It was not a bad day for the Canadian Club team. We tested here a couple of weeks ago and we didn't really learn much because of the weather. We made some pretty big changes between the first and second sessions. I am happy with the car. It is going to be very difficult to pass here. Sometimes you have to work 10, maybe 15 laps to make a pass. We are pretty happy starting on the front row for tomorrow."

***

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"As always, I am going into tomorrow with a positive attitude. We are going to work on the race setup on the oso*fresh car tonight. I think we are still lacking speed, but this race pace should be a little slower. I think we're going to be there at the end tomorrow if nothing goes wrong. I need a little bit of luck and for things to go my way."
