ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT IZOD INDYCAR SERIES NOTES AND QUOTES, PRE-RACE KENTUCKY INDY 300

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM MEIJER CAR

"We tested well in Kentucky a couple weeks ago and I've had podium finishes here in the past so I'm optimistic that the Meijer car will be a contender this weekend. We need to keep the momentum from Chicago going and I think the three remaining ovals should give a good opportunity to end the season on a high note."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"We had a good, productive test at Kentucky a few weeks back and I'm looking forward to the payoff this weekend. As a team, Andretti Autosport has worked very hard to raise its game on the ovals this year and we're seeing the benefits of that hard work. It's great to go to the track every week knowing that Team IZOD will have something to say about the outcome and I expect more of the same at Kentucky."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"Kentucky changes every year. Because of the weather they have over the winter there, it gets bumpier every year. The asphalt changes and that's why they have different lines there. You can run on the bottom, but if your car works better over the bumps you can go up higher. It's kind of like Chicagoland, but it's a lot more challenging. You have to have a better-balanced car at Kentucky to win the race."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"Kentucky is a track that requires you to have a car that really works, if you want to be able to go on the outside. It's ideal to have a car that works well around the bottom because if you're fast around the bottom, it's going to be really hard for someone to pass you. But, if you can run up high, then you have options. Hopefully, we can get the GoDaddy car to do the things we want it to do."
