Marco Andretti on the Kansas Lottery Indy 300:

"I'm looking forward to racing at Kansas Speedway. It will be my first time to race there but the NYSE team had a pretty decent test there a couple of weeks ago. I don't think we quite had the speed that we hoped for but that is something we'll try to achieve this weekend."

Eddie Jones, Race Engineer, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone, on the Kansas Lottery Indy 300:

"Kansas is a difficult track in that you run minimum drag and downforce to get the most speed from the car. But it's usually very hot there and the heat causes the car to become quite difficult in traffic, plus the track surface has some bumps which tend to upset the car. Setting the car up for the race is really a compromise between getting the best mechanical balance with some aeronautical downforce to get the car to handle in traffic; making the car fast but still keep it comfortable enough for the driver."
