Dario Franchitti on the Bombardier 500:

"I'm looking forward to Texas. We had such a hard race at Indianapolis. I'm looking forward to getting that taste out of my mouth. I've never raced at Texas before, so I'm just not too sure what to expect. I did get to watch both races there last year and I know we'll be running a great deal closer than at Indy or Phoenix. But, beyond that, it will be a new experience for me, as will driving at night. That may be the thing I'm looking forward to the most. A night race is perfect for me. Anyone that knows me knows that mornings aren't my favorite time of day, so this will be great. I could sleep until 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon if I really wanted."

Kyle Moyer, General Manager, Andretti Green Racing:

"Texas is a good track for us. I don't think the driver enters in a whole lot until the race. To get the outright speed in qualifying, it'll come down a lot to horsepower and Honda is doing a great job with that right now. Even though Dario hasn't raced at Texas, yet, I think we'll be okay because of the four teams we have. The other three guys will help get him comfortable in the ArcaEx car Thursday and Friday, and then he can really go to work Saturday night."
