Dario Franchitti on the Firestone Indy 200:

"I'm looking forward to racing at Nashville. The day that the IndyCar Series raced at Nashville in 2003 I was in surgery getting my back done, so I'm hoping to have a lot more fun this year. It will certainly be another new experience for me. My lap total there is six and I did all those in my Acura MDX after the media luncheon there a couple weeks back. I haven't even been able to watch a past Nashville race yet, so that is something I'll do before we get there. Nashville has become my home here in the (United) States and I'll have a lot of friends and family coming, so hopefully it will be a good weekend for the ArcaEx team."

Allen McDonald, Race Engineer, #27 ArcaEx Dallara/Honda/Firestone, on the Firestone Indy 200:

"We had a good race at Nashville last year with Bryan Herta, so we have a good baseline setup for the car. Obviously, Dario is new to the Nashville track, but he's proven that he can get to know a track pretty quickly. I'm sure he'll settle in pretty fast and we'll have a good race."
