Texas: Andretti Green Racing Thursday notes

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The Motorola car was fast tonight when we were not in traffic. But the minute we were in traffic we got slow. Unfortunately, we did not have an opportunity to spend a great deal of time in traffic, so hopefully we will get a better feel tomorrow afternoon during the practice sessions."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"This was a difficult practice session for the Team 7-Eleven guys. Our car needs some work right now. We'll make some changes and hopefully be better tomorrow."

Marco Andretti, #26 Blockbuster Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The wind was interesting. Even when we were running on our own, we were treating it like we were in traffic because of the wind. If you can get the car good in the wind, then it won't be bad in traffic. We ended up working on our racecar the whole time. We had ideal conditions with the Blockbuster car so that is why we were able to put it near the top. I think we're a couple of changes away from our racecar yet."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Today was my first day driving at Texas Motor Speedway and it really is a tough track. I wanted to practice more in the traffic but I had few radio communication problems so I couldn't. Hopefully we will be able to sort them out by tomorrow, and I want to get used to the track before the race on Saturday."
