LEXINGTON, Ohio (August 9, 2009) - Andretti Green Racing drivers Danica Patrick, Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti and Hideki Mutoh completed the 13th race of the 2009 IndyCar Series season, the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Driver: Danica Patrick
Car: #7 Boost Mobile/Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"It's a disappointing way to end the weekend. We were running strong until we spun out, which was out of my control. It's frustrating when something like that happens during a race and you have to start all over. Up to that point we were making progress and gaining position. I was hoping for a strong finish this weekend, but it didn't pan out the way we wanted it to. It's going to be nice to have a week off and get recharged before we head into Sonoma."
Driver: Tony Kanaan
Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I think someone made contact with me at the start of the race so we lost positions pretty early. We had to change our strategy from the beginning, but I have to thank my 7-Eleven team for getting us back into the top-ten; it wasn't easy. It was a tough race for sure, but we were able to move up in points."
Driver: Marco Andretti
Car: #26 Meijer Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Not a bad day for the Meijer car. It was a long day, but I'm glad we were able to finish inside the top-ten. The goal is to make our way up in points; it'd be great to year if we're able to charge our way up to fifth and today put us closer to that goal."
Driver: Hideki Mutoh
Car: #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"It was a good finish for the #27 car. We were strong and consistent which allowed us to get a top-five finish. Since there were so few cautions, we concentrated on race strategy, which ended up working in our favor today. It's going to be good to have a week off to regroup before Sonoma."
