KANSAS CITY, Kansas (April 26, 2009) - Andretti Green Racing drivers Danica Patrick, Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti and Hideki Mutoh completed the third race of the 2009 season at the Road Runner Turbo Indy 300 at the Kansas Speedway.

Driver:  Danica Patrick

Car: #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Danica Patrick: Started 3rd, finished 5th
"The Motorola guys did a great job getting me in and out of the pits, which was pivotal since it's so hard to pass out there. We are really excited about going into May, we also moved up five spots in the championship points, so it was a great day for the #7 car."

Driver:  Tony Kanaan

Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Tony Kanaan: Started 8th, finished 3rd
"I have to thank the Team 7-Eleven guys for the great pit stops today. We are going into Indy leading in the championship points, which is great for the #11 car. Consistency is the key in racing, so we need to keep that in mind. We had a great race and the rain stayed off so I can't be happier with today."

Driver:  Marco Andretti

Car: #26 Team Venom Energy Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Marco Andretti: Started 5th, finished 6th
"I happy with my sixth place finish for the #26 car, we struggled a bit but I can't complain. We took a non-perfect car and kept it on pace with the leaders. We had a rough morning warm-up but the Venom Energy boys worked hard all day so we were able to turn the day around. I feel confident going into the Indy 500."

Driver:  Hideki Mutoh

Car: #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Hideki Mutoh: Started 13th, finished 7th
"It was a really tough race for the Formula Dream car. We started from the 13th position and were able to move through traffic finish seventh. I'm a little disappointed because I think we could've had a top-five finish since I had a strong car. I can't wait for the month of May to start."
