Andretti to Start 17th in NYSE Car at Homestead-Miami Speedway

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (March 25, 2006) - Marco Andretti recorded a lap of 214.000 miles per hour (24.9813 seconds) in the #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone during qualifying today at Homestead-Miami Speedway, which finds him in the 17th starting position for Sunday's running of the Indy Racing League® IndyCar® Series Homestead-Miami Indy 300 Presented by XM Satellite Radio.

The season-opening event of the 2006 IndyCar Series is set to go green at 3:45 p.m. (EST) Sunday with ABC Sports providing live broadcast coverage of the 200-lap event beginning at 3:30 p.m. (EST). The race may also be heard on XM Satellite Radio on XM channel 145.

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone:
"The #26 NYSE car felt good through turns 1 and 2, but when I got into 3 and 4 it had a big understeer and I just scrubbed all my speed off. My qualifying run could have been better, but you can qualify almost anywhere at these places and if you have a good race setup you'll be okay. My goal for tomorrow is a top-10 and I believe if I have a comfortable car then I can hang with the lead group."
