IPS: IRL: Watkins Glen: Andretti Green Racing Friday notes

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Overall, the Motorola car was a bit difficult and nervous today, and that made it very hard to get a good lap time. We just have to work on solving each of the issues we're facing without creating new problems. Hopefully, we can find a better balance tomorrow and have a decent qualifying run."

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

"I was pretty happy with the Team 7-Eleven car today. It's always difficult to setup a car on a road course because you have to choose which corners you are going to gain a lot of time in and try to set the car up for those. You are never going to have a good car all around. We gained speed in the afternoon session and hopefully we'll be able to find more before qualifying tomorrow."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I thought the NYSE car was better in the afternoon that it was in the first session so we definitely made progress today. We were fighting the same issues the other drivers were in that we just couldn't find a lot of grip in the turns. We'll work on it tonight with our teammates and hopefully be able to find some more speed."

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

"We had some good progress today for the Canadian Club car. I have to thank my guys because they made a lot of big changes while we were on pit lane. It was looking good there at the end of the second session. I messed up the last lap that was the lap for me. I am a little upset with myself for that. We'll do a better job tomorrow."

***

Jaime Camara, #11 oso*fresh Dallara/Firestone

"I'm really disappointed with the qualifying session. The oso*fresh car was much quicker in practice this morning. I don't know what happened to the car, but we will work on it tonight and figure it out for tomorrow. We need a good qualifying session tomorrow so we don't have to work to get back to the front."
