Kansas: Andretti Autosport race report

JOHN ANDRETTI, ...

JOHN ANDRETTI, #43 TEAM WINDOW WORLD CAR

"I can't be disappointed with this. I felt if we finished in the top 10, that would be better than I could expect and we finished ninth. We ran up there, we ran good and we ran good on the long runs. Like everybody, I think we wish (Scott) Dixon hadn't caught it quite so good because then we could have finished a little better, but I'm pleased. We weren't perfect, but it was good for me. I had a good time."

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"I think the theme of the day was salvage. The positive is that we gained 13 positions from start to finish and on a normal day that's great. But, when you're starting at the back of the pack it takes more than that. We're still missing something in the Venom car, so we'll just have to take what we learned this weekend and move forward. We'll refocus now on winning the big one at the end of the month."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"It was a fight out there, for sure. It was really, really tough. The IZOD guys did a great job on the stops. We had a car that was manageable, but it was a little loose. I almost lost it out there a couple times, but almost doesn't count. We brought it home and this was good for the championship. Now, we just need to go get the funding to go past Indy."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"It was a great race for us. I've got to thank the whole 7-Eleven team for the great pit stops today. We did what we could. We definitely didn't have the fastest car out there, but I think we maximized what we had. I want to thank the fans for coming out. I hope they enjoyed the race, too. This is a good way to head into Indy."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"Today was really disappointing because I think the GoDaddy car was actually pretty strong. I really wanted to enjoy a great run today, but it just didn't happen for us."
