IRL: Richmond: Andretti Green Racing race report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"This wasn't a bad result. The balance of the Motorola car was OK, but we just didn't have enough grip. My guys did a good job in the pits and got us a couple spots, and we stayed with the lead group all night. Overall, we were OK, but I think we have some ideas as to how to make things a bit better next time."

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

"I'm really disappointed. It was really tough today. We just never seemed to get the Team 7-Eleven car where I thought it needed to be. We were just hanging on today."

Marco Andretti, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"It was frustrating. We had a pole car in the NYSE car yesterday and the rain just killed us. We worked our tails off and we found a car that was good enough to run up front, but we were stuck back in traffic. Track position is everything and we just couldn't catch one break in the race. It was just one of those weekends."

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

"I enjoy driving Richmond a lot. I think it suits my style because you have to feel what the car is doing. The Canadian Club guys have given me really good cars here so it makes my job a little bit easier. I have to say big thank you to the engineering staff at AGR. We took some big gambles last night. Allen McDonald, my engineer, took an educated guess and it really worked out today."
