Texas: Andretti Autosport qualifying report

MARCO ANDRETTI, ...

MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR

"We had the Venom car flat-out for qualifying. I would like to see us starting higher than 10th, but I think we did some decent work in race trim today. I'm staying optimistic; we can make passing happen and get things done from 10th."

RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #37 TEAM IZOD CAR

"We're going to have to fight hard tomorrow night to go from the back to the front. Qualifying here is easy, but racing here is a completely different story. It's high intensity. We're just fighting the same speed issues we fought at Kansas and Indy, and it's basically an exercise in engineering at this point. We've got our work cut out for us, but this team always gives me great race cars. Hopefully, we'll have something for them tomorrow night."

TONY KANAAN, #11 TEAM 7-ELEVEN CAR

"Qualifying here doesn't really matter. It's so easy to put four laps together, so it is more of the engineer qualifying than it is the driver. That said, we have spent our time focusing on the race tomorrow night and that is where our minds are. We'll take what we did today and do everything we can tomorrow night."

DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR

"I'm really happy with our qualifying run. It's not very often that you are faster in qualifying than in practice, but we were. We will make a few adjustments before tomorrow night, but other than that, I'm really happy with the GoDaddy car."
