Marco Andretti on the Peak Antifreeze Indy 300: "The NYSE team has its first win under its belt so hopefully we won't have to wait too long to do it again. We had a good test at Chicagoland Speedway last week and we'll be looking to apply what we learned to not only our car, but all four AGR cars this weekend. At our last superspeedway event (Kentucky) we ran better until we encountered a problem in the closing laps, so hopefully we'll be up to speed right out of the truck and at the front this weekend."

Eddie Jones, Race Engineer, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone, on the Peak Antifreeze Indy 300: "Chicagoland Speedway is another 1.5-mile high-banked oval that lends itself to two- and three-wide racing. We had a successful test there with Marco last week. We made some changes to the setup which gave us some speed that we had been lacking, improved the car over the course of the test and gave Marco a lot of laps around the track. I certainly feel that we'll be competitive this weekend."
