Kansas: Andretti Autosport qualifying report

JOHN ANDRETTI, ...

JOHN ANDRETTI, #43 TEAM WINDOW WORLD CAR

"Being with this race team will help me get up to speed much quicker. Right now, I can't give a lot of feedback because I've never raced at Kansas in an Indy car. Obviously, it's a speed track and we need to make it go as fast as we can and still hang on to it. I'm glad to have four teammates that I'll get a chance to draw from tonight and we'll see what we can do with the Window World car for tomorrow."

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"We didn't work much today on our qualifying setup. With the limited practice time we decided to really focus on the race car. That considered, it's not a bad run for the Venom boys, but it could have been better, for sure. We had a problem with the rear bar not locking in and the car jumping soft on me which caused understeer. I think we lost some time there but the car is only going to go as fast as it's going to go."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR "This team gives me such great race cars. We've been on the podium half the races we've run this year and we're coming off our first win together. So, today is really out of the ordinary for us and it will really be an engineering exercise for Team IZOD overnight. I was flat-out on the bottom of the racetrack, and there isn't much else the guy driving the race car can do. Hopefully, we'll find some answers."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"I'm not happy. We need to be better than what we were today, for sure. We have a lot of work to do tonight and have a lot of answers to find."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"That's not a bad starting position for the GoDaddy car today. I was really loose on the first lap so I think that cost me a few spots, but I'm glad to be starting up front. I have a strong car so I hope tomorrow ends with a result that shows just that."
