Kentucky: Andretti Green Racing race report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Considering the fact that we started from the very back of the field, I'm happy with an 11th place finish. It was difficult getting through traffic at the start of the race, but that is what I expected. All-in-all, the Motorola car did very well. I have to thank my crew for getting the back-up car ready in such a short amount of time, they did an awesome job."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"This was a difficult night for us, especially in the early stages of the race. My guys worked hard throughout the race to make the Team 7-Eleven car better and we were able to get more and more competitive as the night went on. Obviously an eighth-place finish was not what we were looking for, though."

Marco Andretti, #26 Meijer Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"We need to start capitalizing on races like this where we have the car to win, but overall it wasn't a bad night for the Meijer team. (Scott) Dixon had a bit of speed on us but I think the Meijer car was better in traffic. He and I were the two guys who had cars to win tonight so it's just unfortunate that we weren't in Victory Lane."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I'm very disappointed that I was unable to finish the race. I am not sure what exactly went wrong, but I started to have a bad vibration, so I decided to pit. After a few laps, I was still fighting the vibration, so I went back in and that's when we saw that the right rear tire drive peg broke. The Formula Dream team gave me a great car. I was confident that we were going to have a good finish, so it's very disappointing."
